Re: gaps between panels.

"Is it ok to fill these gaps with epoxy...?"

You betcha. Next question...

Seriously, if building these boats were a tedious PITA, hardly anyone would ever complete one, let alone subject it to the rigors of routine paddling. Yet craploads of them exist out there today, and at least half are built by first-timers. So feel free to use your best judgement, and always keep the bigger picture in mind.

The WR18 will be a splendid boat! Build her carefully, but not TOO carefully, if you can somehow get the drift of what I'm saying; and enjoy -- both building and paddling.

Cheers, Kurt
