At this point I had loosely stitched up the majority of the canoe, except for the ends.
I wasn’t confident enough with what I came up with in CAD so I had not cut the ends of the strakes to ensure I could get the curve I wanted. So I had to clamp the ends tight and stitch up my freehand curve inside of the cut that was going to be made. I then freehanded a jigsaw away from the line for later filing and sanding back.
I then put a couple of temporary gunwals and spreader on so I could carry the shell without it collapsing.
