Setting out the sails

The paddle blanks glued and starting to shape up in sitka spruce with decorative mahogany 'stripes'.

Fitting the folding rudder

The floorboards are now fitted and backrest and seats fit into a variety of alternative positions.

Time to test the sail measurements and spars. All seems ok.

Thanks for the update. Those sails look fantastic. Where did you have them made and how much did it cost?

Thanks for the comments Tomy.

R & J Sails, North Somerset,UK (and a very good job they seem to have made). Budget for about £400 sterling. I specified a few design ideas which I had picked up from Todd Bradshaw's excellent book on the subject.
