I can honestly say that this is one of my favourite things I've ever done. Here she is, in all her final glory! Never-ending gratitude to @seawolfkayak
for putting on such a life-changing workshop. We also had the chance to paddle the kayaks at the end of the day and I'M IN LOVE. Can I make five more of these now?! It's such a dream.
The last day today involved putting on the deck rigging, which is made with impressively strong leather chord, and oak toggles. This boat is incredibly seaworthy, and is begging to be loaded with gear and taken on a long trip. I do adore the winter, but I must say, the spring is going to be very exciting.
I'll probably have a few more photos to share in the coming weeks from the build, but in the meantime I'll be driving back to Winnipeg to finish my album with the freshest of ears. The world feels full of magic, and I am forever grateful.
