Stripping, Stripping and More Stripping

Not really anything new, just adding strips. At first these were pretty easy but now I’m getting to the curved parts of the forms and the Robo-bevel is getting used quite heavily. A pair of strips (one each side) is easily 60-90 minutes now between beveling, cutting, test fitting, gluing and taping. On the plus side each strip is one more closer to a finished kayak and the shape is really starting to be revealed now.

I think I was also a bit optimistic last time when I estimated 5 pairs per day. Only three pairs were installed today. On a week night if I’m home early enough I think a single pair will be reasonable.
