Greenland Kayak Building Day 9

On day 9 we catch up, work on our paddles and try out the boats.

Glen's new boat in its upright position presenting its classic Greenland profile with its raked bow and gracefully arching sheer line.

We must also try the boat out in the sideways position

.. and in the most stable upside down position.

.. from which we escape by the skin of our teeth.

Beyond Day 9
Beyond day 9 the possibilities are limitless.

On a beautiful sunny morning, Tony shows off the Western Greenland look in kayak gear.

And Glen in slightly more conventional head gear.

And when paddling finally becomes too much, it's time to practice the traditional Greenland maneuver called "rafting up."
