assembling the hull 26

The hull is now turned the right way up and clamped to a set of wooden legs that are in turn clamped to the table or trolley top. I say 'clamped', but the hull is in fact suspended in a way that allows the wood to settle into its natural shape as a kayak. This takes a few days, and really is something quite magical to see.
