Just about there!

 The final stretch, seats in and paint on.

 Maple seats glued up

 Holes for caning

Caned and installed, period correct with copper tube used for rear spacer to level seat. 
Front seats are mounted directly under rails as on most early canoes

Getting the bottom wet. No stem bands and final coat of paint to go, but water ready

Ready for a paddle

Classic lines, overall shape and tumblehome correct per the original.

On to the second build....
