Filling in the right side…

In the past two days, I have been catching up on the right side of the deck. The first step was to install the two strips that define either side of the “inflection” curve. This is an involved process (which I discovered while installing the left side versions) and it took me an entire day.

Once those strip are in place, it is a simple matter of filling in the remainder, just like I did on the left side. I managed four strips (with pin-striping) today. The first of these strips on both the fore and aft decks is rather tricky since they are very long tapers which extend almost all the way to the ends of the kayak.

With these four strips installed on the right side, the central high deck region becomes much more prominent.
