I have almost finished the prep work for the stretched form of the West Greenland Kayak.
17 Nov The west system epoxy created a few problems, it makes for a slippery surface and as the clamps were attached they became hard to hold and even with the wax it stuck to the dowels .The result was still fine but I will try the polyurethane glue next time.

Spent the weekend working on the build, I made a huge stuff up by putting the rib mortise on the wrong side, I have plugged these up and spend yesterday cutting the rib mortises and the deck mortises .

Slow progress wedges done and most of the bevels cut .I found it helpful to draw a line on the edge of the taper to keep track .
