Historical Society Skiff: Fir Gunwales

Sunday. The interior is all but finished. The 3rd and last coat of white top coat paint needs to be applied. Along with 4 more coats of varnish on her brightwork. I used 1-1/32″ clear D. Fir stock for her gunwales. To bend them they had to cook in the steam box for just over 2 hours. The keens, bench and breast hook were fit with clear western red cedar. The oar lock mounts were cut from some scrap teak. Next week I will turn her over and glass the hull.
