Half the frame – unfolded

 Here is a top view of what I have done so far. I must say, i am really enjoying this DIY boat building experience. I never thought that an hour a night would see the boat coming along so fast. Granted, none of the pieces are finished. I will have a lot of work to do going back and beveling all of the pieces and rounding corners and so forth. I am NOT looking forward to sanding all the edges of wood on this kayak.

 An angled view of this half of the frame.

 This is looking down the frame with me squeezing the end together. There is a piece of rubber and some snaps that does this when the boat is finished.
I am going to have to remember that for final assembly, I want all the exposed joints to overlap with the outside towards the front if I can get away with that and still have it fold.
