In a month or two it'll be time to launch. Right now it cant be done due to ice covering the lakes around the place where I'm dwelling.

I choose to use a matt finish on the inside of the hull. A great varnish added with some PU to make it durable and protective aganst the UV rays.

So long from Kenneth Modin of Sweden

Hello! This is my idea of what a AGB should look like. This is why I choose to add another 12 ribs. Theese were made of Juniper, age 50-75 yars old. I also took the less convinient way of bending the strips all the way up (some did break). I bought solid planks of Western red Cedar from an import-company some 200 km:s away. Did all of the sawing and milling at home. The wood I used to create seats, oars, stems and gunwales is nearby grown swedish Cherry. The extra planks to put the feet on and to hold the footbrace are made of mahogany.
