Almost....

Still laid low with this horrible summer cold (I"ve already missed a whole week of work) and still not feeling 100%.  Even with my new fast kayak, the WaterTribe North Carolina Challenge will likely now be a cruise rather than race for me this year.

Of course we're (mostly Paul) still building it, but it's looking like it'll be done on time.  The cockpit coaming is finished, and Paul was able to finish sanding it.  Now time for the finish work.  Paul's really done a great job.

Here she is outside drying off after a good washing, ready for painting and varnishing.  The deck is beautiful, thanks Graham for the African Mahogany.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your hatch covers? I've built one 'yak, building another but was hoping to get something a little more functional than wooden hatch covers with weather stripping as water proofing.

Hope you feel better soon and enjoy the Challenge.

Wow Paul is doing such a good job. Please post the paint as soon as you've done a coat. I can't wait to see it.
