Off my rocker!
When the bottom panels and the bilge panels were stitched together I was alarmed to find the boat coming together wit a lot of 'reverse rocker' i.e. the bottom of the boat was concave when it should be convex! It wasn't until the side panels were stitched on and the 3 spreader bars put in place did the canoe take on it's familiar boat shape. I breathed a sigh of relief at this point as I had envisaged starting the whole thing from scratch! Oh the value of patience!
