canoe, part 10: turning the canoe, sanding and glassing the inside

After a couple of days letting the epoxy cure (it doesn’t need that long), it was time to turn the canoe around. When doing that for the first time I realized how light this thing was. It is also still fairly flexible. Taking the strong-back apart gave me enough wood to build two stands for the canoe and now the inside sanding started, a much tougher job then the outside. The same applies for the inside glassing, which was even harder because I had to do it alone. I strongly advise not to do it alone!!!
