How to Set Up a Router Table to cut Cove and Bead Cedar Strips
Cut the Bead First
I like to cut the bead first because it will not get dinged up with any rough handling. The cove is more delicate due to the narrow edges. By cutting the bead first there will be fewer opportunities for damage between milling the cove and assembling the strip on your boat.
While the weather is warm enough, I try to get out for a morning work out in some boat. Here I am in my Mystery racing kayak. This was about a week ago. Now the river is starting to ice over.

I've been putting my new design extensive sea trials as I work on finalizing the builder's instruction manual. I'm really pleased with how the boat is performing, it has very nice glide, decent initial stability and great secondary stability, handles waves gracefully and seems quite fast. I ended up adding a small skeg (as I expected) that allows the boat to track very nicely while maintaining good maneuverability.
I guess Time.com does not keep their advertising pages up for very long. The video for Lincoln ran for about a month on the Time website, but then they removed the add. The director put up a copy on his Vimeo page and it is currently available there.
Attendence was good at this year's Meet at the Beach at Bluff Point State Park in Groton, CT. I didn't have time to count how many people attended, but I did take some pictures plus the above bits of video. Below are some of the photos.
I love kayaking, but there is something about a canoe. We had family down for the Memorial Day weekend. After everyone left and the dishes were cleaned, we decided to put the canoe in the water and go for a paddle. A kayak always seems to take a little bit more forethought, if only to get the right clothes on.
