Dec 15 - Edge panel stitched
A view down a length of the kayak (near the cockpit), with the right edge panel stitched on. It took a bit of convincing myself that it would line up properly, but after a bit of blind faith, I just got to work inserting the wire stitches and quickly found that each end (bow and stern) as well as the middle reference, the butt joints, lined up to within less than a 1/32" from the keel panels. So far I'm quite amazed at the exact tolerances of the Pygmy panels!
