The Cedar Strip Boat Project Goes On and On!

When I started building a cedar strip three panel boat I never dreamed how much time and work it would become. I have done it shade tree style without a shop or place to build it. Every piece is put up in my garage at night and every time it rains. I started fiber glassing the boat yesterday and it started to rain. I had to grab the boat and put it in the garage. I was going to glass the outside today and now a storm is moving in so I will put it up and try another day. I will keep you posted as it gets closer to being finished. Wild Ed

Looks like quite a job! Good looking boat so far, looking forward to seeing it done, as your time allows, of course.

Boy that is going to be a beautiful little pirogue when it's done. I can't wait to see it on the water. Does it have any rub bars on the bottom?

No rub bars Albert, it will be decked and have four foot waterproof hatches in each end kayak style. It is 17 foot long so it should be fast and easy to paddle with a double blade. Ed
