Well, its pretty much together… cloth has a few "rough" spots where its hard to get things around the curve. Note that this would NOT have been a problem if I wasn’t doing things different than designed 🙂
Yes, I know its nowhere near as nice looking as some others Origami 6′ – California Style, for example), but we had fun, learned some, and have something that will work for what we need.
We don’t have the keel "guard" or strip on, and we’ll see what we do about the "trimmy pieces" along the edges of the fabric, but it should definitely float now. No slick rope edging on the cloth, and I have some trimming to do at the stern (some of that you see is loose and needs trimmed down.
Its kind of a handful to pick up… an 8′ boat is bigger than I thought, really 🙂
