Gunwales, ribs and floatation are in - working on seats and yokes tomorrow. It weighed 30 lbs with the gunwales on (before the ribs were added). I'll weigh it again tomorrow to see how much got added from the ribs and floatation. I'm still hopeful for sub-40 lbs.

Yesterday we applied the finish coat http://www.myrabo.com/k-canoe/kevlarII/10-seats-finish.htm and worked on the seat fromes.
We sanded the rough edges off the ribs today, and re-epoxied the sanded spots. Also worked on the seat frames. Applied tung oil to the frames in preparation for drilling tomorrow for caning.
Shop is closed up to keep the bugs off the finish!
