Lashing the frames is such fun. Again and again. I think there are 59 lashing points on Whiplash. They are what holds the boat together. The artificial sinew has a 75 pound break strength which I found out when it broke into my lip. So cool, too bad it was off camera. 6-8 wraps gives you pretty good total strength for each joint.
Did you know that this is the skin on frame kayak I am building to use in the California 100 river race on the Sacramento river June 11? Have you donated to the cause yet up over on the right? Do it, then you will feel like a champion!
