Fit all the doors in the salon. Need to be varnished...of course...
Yellow cedar ribs for hull ceiling. The cedar is glued to the hull with epoxy. They are 7/8" thick so there is room for the 3/4" insulation I fit between them.
Closed cell insulation and ash hull ceiling comes next. Finished installing that today.
My tool box. Everything I need in there.
Some little side notes I thought to share. This spring I made a Greenland style kayak paddle of yellow cedar with a thin strip of W. Oak in the middle (would not bother with the oak again for the sake of weight). Here it is in comparison to a modern paddle. As an experiment that only took two evenings to make and very little cost, it was successful and easier on my shoulders than my old paddle.
I thought I would share one of my latest sewing projects. I usually make or modify (and repair) a lot of my outdoors equipment and my industrial sewing machine I bought 20 years ago is one of the best things I ever got. I made this day rucksack to replace my old pack that the PU coating on the nylon Cordura had begun to deteriorate. I decided then to make this pack in a heavy duty cotton-polyester fabric and treated it with wax/paraffin that was soaked in with a heat gun. Sewn with 69 weight nylon thread. 5mm evasote closed cell foam for the shoulder straps and a removable 10mm evasote back pad. So far after almost a half a year in use it has proven itself.
