Tonight I finished the stern stem laminations (took them off the forms, sanded all the epoxy drools down, cleaned up the ends (the Japanese pull saw I got is AWESOME!)), mounted the stern form on its end riser, and (re)created the inner bow stem.

Here are some (admittedly crappy-- taken on a cell phone) pics of all this stuff I'm talking about:

How absolutely cool to take pictures that
show the kayak already underwater! That last
one looks like something that should be in
the Seattle airbrush art museum.

I'm glad the pull saw is working out! Hardwick's is an awesome hardware store. :)

Wow! Very very cool - you've made a ton of progress. I'm looking forward to seeing it again sometime soon.

Have fun!
