The Auk was my first stripper. I built it from a CLC kit with bead and cove strips. Being a shorter, wider boat than some there is a fair amount of bending and twisting to get the strips to conform. It was a bit tricky in spots but well worth it. I would suggest not using B&C strips and use square edged strip with a rolling bevel. Nick new Robo-bevel would come in handy there.
