Being retired allows me lots of time to work on "Walda", the Origami 6.

This week the priming/painting finished and bottom panels got bolted to keel. I was only able to find a 1 1/2" ss hinge, which seems to work out OK. Also used ss flat head machine screws 10/32 w/ nyloc nuts and ss fender washers where needed. No Chicago screws in ss or bronze available locally. Now I’m getting ready for attaching strips and then PVC cloth.

2 shots of the bones:

Maybe it’ll be in water next week.
