Moving on

With a simple spotted gum floor held in with some cleats, canoe number two is ready for the next 30 degree launch day.  I am very happy with the finish and she should look great in the water.  I have been unhappy with Marisol's (that's canoe number one) seating and steering arrangements so I will launch canoe number two as is until I can get my head around a simple adjustable seat and steering system.

In the mean time I have been given part of an old flat pack kitchen so along with the backlog of projects I can barely move in the workshop.  Stay tuned for a mancave makeover.  I will probably give the beer fridge and pool table a miss and just try to improve my storage and work benches.
