The mock up of Exlex the Canoe Cruiser is now on even keel and I have started mocking up the interior. When  moving about inside the boat I realised that there is more space than I need. I thuse made an inner planking reducing the inside beam by about 7 cm on each side. I also moved the bulkheads closer. This is the glory of mockup. Like a writer doing a draft. There is nothing like mowing about in three dimensional space. Therefore I will reduce the size from 7.8 X 1.3 to 7.2 X 1.2 meters about.

Below are 3 pictures.

I am standing close to the planned saloon
Me in the saloon. The bench to my left is for for and eating tools. The inner planking to reduce space can been seen behind my back and on the opposite side.
Me in the bow. The brown shape represents the centerboard case. In the middle of the boat there will be some sort of ballasted near vertical chinerunners.

To be continued…
