Re: Nice! How'd you do the bow?

: Hi Stephen,
: I bought the building Manuel from Rob Macks for the fire star. I
: used Rob's building method and adapted that to the station forms
: of the Nikumi. I did the stern the same way. Rob Macks methods
: for building these are excellent, Rob is an artist. I give the
: bow and stern credits to Rob Macks at Laughing Loon Kayaks.
: There is a lot of twist in the strips at the bow. I had to use a
: heat gun to persuade the strips to twist that much.

Very sweet, Clayton, very sweet.
