The great kayak adventure -- Day 2

For those new to this posting, we are at Kayak Ways in Brownfield ME, building skin-on-frame kayaks. Pictured, along with the kayaks to be, are Trudy Phillips and Turner Wilson in the background.

I fear that this is a lot like building a new house; adding the big structural components goes pretty fast, and then the finishing detail work seems to take forever.
