Things have been winding up here at the Marland Boat Shop. I may actually get my parking spot back for my truck just before winter. There are only a few things left to do - all on hold until my oars arrive - the final fitting of the foot rest and footbar, and shaping and gluing the seat.
And the leather wrapping of the oar shafts, plus the custom painting of the oars, to match the color scheme of course.
Today, Huerfano's birthday was celebrated with installation of her seat cushions - custom made to size and with room for the seat drainage holes by Jason at Wet Dreams Supply in Flagstaff.
Now it's time to start planning the permit selections and hope for some rivers to take her down next year.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
how are those bench pads attached?ReplyDelete
Small footman loops are screwed to junction of seat back and seat top, plz some more on top of deck. Straps go,through them. The bottom straps, three of which are seen extending down from the seat cushion, have metal snaps in them which snap into small buttons you screw into the wall.ReplyDelete
