It seems spring might be finally here, most of the snow is gone and we are above zero (celsius) both day and night (still ice on the water though). So I unwrapped the boat today.

My daughters playing pirates

Did some odd jobs, mounted the oarlocks, fitted the rowing seat, foot brace and finally mocked up the push-pull stick.

Oarlock. Yes, they are high, I am tall and if they are too high I can always cut them down a little.

Marked where the seat reinforcements will go.

Had to modify the foot brace quite a lot to make it fit.

Testing a piece of oak to see if it is useful as a push-pull stick, and yes I think it will be.

Lets hope te weather stay so we can see some progress.

Time today: 1 h
