Peterborough's 10 and 11 or How I make my Canoes Part 6.

At this stage we now have the outwales to finish off on Peterborough 11 and the Coamings have to be cut to fit but before I start this I give Peterborough 10 another coat of varnish and leave her to dry undisturbed at the far end of the workshop. Then I return to Peterborough 11 and trim the ends of the outwales before filling the screw holes with wooden plugs and then rounding and sanding their edges. You will remember from part 5 that I cut the decks to fit the coamings but the coamings still need to be cut out where they fit around the inwales. This is a tricky operation that relies on a bit of guesswork because you can't see if it fits until it has been cut and if you cut it too small it
