    The 1897 is off the mold! Cant wait to finish her. Holy cow, so much planking, took quite a bit of time to skin this one. Working on figuring out the closed gunwales right now.:rolleyes:

    Man, and I can't even plank a full size canoe. Amazing, as always...

    Nick, YOu should see Chris' work in real life. Stunning. Practise makes perfect. I'm still practising.

    I imagine it is even more inspiring in the flesh, so to speak. Most only place I ever go in Michigan is Manistique, but you know, someday, maybe I'll make it over to the lower half... Or maybe when assembly is a little closer to home...

    Did we ever figure out the fastening method? Epoxy of some kind? I don't see any scale tacks... :l

    I wish I could tell you scale tacks, but I use gap filling super glue. Thanks alot for your interest. I love sharing with those who appreciate!!!!
