Now just need to duplicate the stations, mount them on the strongback. I got all my cedar, probably enough to do 2 canoe's. I still need to machine that, its full dime...

Knots? OK??

Just started a build of the Canadien. I am building the strong back right now, about half done that, got my cedar on order from a mill. This probably will take me some time to finish, since I don't have allot of free time. Hopefully finish it through the winter.

Thanks

Got the plans today!! And got all the pieces cut out for the Strongback, now just have to put that together. One question, what do you guys use to trace the station molds off the plans? I could go to the local blue print shop and have full size photocopies done, make 7 of them then just cut them out...
