the end is in sight at last

Wed morning paddling through the rocks before going home to work on my kayak
The time has come to join hull and deck after  too long a time of not progressing. The parts had changed shape a bit and needed to be coaxed back to the original sizes with clamps tape and rope

I have filled the ends with epoxy already and now have joined them permanently with more epoxy, then I am aligining the sides and taping them together.

Once everything is well aligned I will begin fiberglassing the inside seam with tape and epoxy, then its time for the outer seam and finishing. There is still quite a bit of work to do, make seats and backrests, attach footbraces and final sanding and varnish but at least it looks like a boat now and the rest will go quite quickly.
