Work continues on the Plywood Canoe for my feature film

So once the fiber glass dried I could then start to set up the sides. i lined ten up and placed s 1 x 3 in the middle to hold up the sides and make the right width for the center.

I then bent the ends in and placed two more smaller pieces of wood in to help keep the shape.

I tied the ends together with three zip ties. It worked really well. I just had to drill three holes in the ends to put the ties threw.

I then flipped the Canoe over and lined up the bottom of the Canoe. I used a air powered finishing nail gun to nail the bottom down.

My next blog posting will cover how I fiber glassed  the seams inside the Canoe.
