Ready to start sanding

Part 5

Well, a week has passed since the canoe was transferred from Scott’s shop to mine. Slower progress this past week due to other commitments.

The decks have been fitted in the ends and a temporary spreader attached where the yoke will eventually go. The interior has been sanded and today Susan and I did the outside with a long belt from a sanding machine to which I attached handles. One on each side with a back and forth motion took care of the rough sanding and fairing, after which I spent a couple of hours with the orbital sander refining the job. Tomorrow I’ll be applying fairing compound to get as fair a surface as possible before the glass/epoxy stage. See below for more photos of the week's work.
