Between computer crashes and needing to get other things done, I haven’t done too much on the kayak lately but preparing for the final finish and building the backrest, footrest and paddle. All very time consuming things to make and then cover with fiberglass for strength and protection and get all nice and trimmed down for the final finish. I just picked up some Endura EX-2C 100 Clear Topcoat thanks to Paul the Shipwright’s recommendation, to do the final finish. Now I just need to be ready when the weather is right and finish this girl up. Note that I made the paddles (one a gift for my son) with a 70 degree twist so they are feathered. Lots of hand shaping involved in making those little jewels. I’m really struggling with whether to cut an opening in the rear deck for a hatch. So easy to mess it up and then making the lip to support it is a challenge
