Days 3 to 12

Ten days have gone by since writing my last post. The building of the 28 inch double hull canoe I had designed a few days ago was finished yesterday August 2nd with the rigging being the remaining task to be done.

I was near to mount the sail today would it not have been for a moment of inattention.

Indeed I had spend several hours crafting the sail when, within a fraction of a second everything went to waste. In wanting to clean the sail I somehow lifted one corner of it to fast and it broke. That was the end of that. I will have to make a new sail tomorrow.

Otherwise I am very satisfied with the canoe. I used highly figured Koa for the bow and stern tops as well as for the stacked up rims.
