Adding the chines and finishing the Hull

Now to finish the hull. All that is left the stringers/Chines that sit either side of the Keelson.
First I have to plane the last 1.2m, tapering down 3mm
on each side.

Then onto strapping the chines to the ribs and finding the
right lay.

Next shaping the chine ends to fit against the stems.

Then its a running lash down each chine and then
lashing each pair together
and each end.

Finally the frame Hull is ready. I am really happy
it and heres a few pictures at different angles.

Next, flipping the kajak over and working on the plates at the bow at
stern to secure them.
