She will be ready to float as soon as the inner varnish has dried. I still need a paddle and some warm weather, but I hope to get her on the water in the next couple of weeks at the most.
At a rough count it has taken 37 hours to build. Quite a lot of that time spent pondering. So quite a quick project. It would have gone much faster if I had been working in a warm time of the year. The resin as slow to spread because it was so cold. But I have still to see if she is water tight. And I still need that proverbial paddle before I risk going up any creeks.
