The Usual Stuff, except that I'm discovering that things that look "cool" on Kayak Foundry aren't quite as "cool" on the strongback. I now wish I hadn't made the bow entry so sharp.
It occurred to me that I don't necessarily have to strip slavishly to the forms on my own design, but I have to strip symmetrically and workably.
I how also wish that I had made the bow & stern forms with an internal stem, like the Outer Island. I forgot what a pain it is to join the ends of the strips. I'm not following those forms exactly.
In fact, I'm accumulating so many should-haves that I'm considering starting all over, from the design.
