I am a carpenter that has worked on many commercial fishing boats and ferries. I have renewed planks,stems and keels. I see that I will need to use finesse that isn't needed on larger vessels, when I start this kayak. The Petrel is absolutely gorgeuos and I would love to build one. I see another question posted about transitioning around the hard chines. Is it just more hand planing or is there a trick ? I would like this boat to look like furniture... at least before she starts a long life at sea.
Thanks in advance
