The race is on! By tomorrow afternoon the boats need to be ready to go into the water. Not to float but to swell up in order to cork the boats water tight.
Thing two is getting really close, i've been making thwart knees and installing them for the last two days. there are eight per boat sixteen in all and each is a custom job. Really fun but a little tedious.
Above is thing two with most of the thwart knees in. Below are two pictures of thing one with her knees already in.
Here is a great shot of what the boats will look like, removable floors are out the hatches are open and all the little bronze bits are missing, but you get the idea.
