Weather hits 2 degrees Celsius, time to canvas a boat. A 14' Peterborough restored for a daughter goes quick, especially with many hands
Stretching the canvas, the upside down method. Much prefer this to right side up and bracing the boat down in the taught canvas
Nice and taught.
A few more strokes on the come-a-long and its ready. The Ford anchor works fine
Other end anchored to the wall.
Clothespins in place
Ready to mark the ribs, staple guns loaded with Stainless
Sides done, boat cut out and ready to close ends
Gotta do the spots where the boat sits on the sawhorses
Dyed seat cane
The lesson here is to have batteries for the camera, but it did get done! Just no shots of closing in the ends...
