Establish the Thickness of the Hull

Hull

To establish the thickness of the hull, small holes are drilled through the canoe. Pre-measured yellow cedar pegs are inserted. The inside of the hull is carved away until the ends of the pegs appear. The bottom of the hull is carved to a thickness of approximately three inches and the side to two inches.
