Yesterday I spent most of the day scraping and sanding using the fairing board. I also filled in the missing strip at either end of the kayak where the ends mount.
Today, in addition to more scraping and sanding, I mounted the ends and covered them with cedar strips. The scraper I am using is one of my dad’s. It is made from high-speed steel, so it keeps an edge for a long time. The shape is perfect for smoothing out the inflection curves.
