The To Do List, again

A month ago I posted a to-do list. Let's see what we can strike off the list:

Kayak To-Do List
1. Sand inside seam
2. Install mobies
a. Mark location
b. Mask surrounding area
c. Cut patches of glass cloth for reinforcement
d. Epoxy in place with thick epoxy & fillets overlayed with glass cloth
3. Build & install cheek plates
4. Build & install bulkheads

5. Build & install bulkhead footbrace
6. Install paddle park
a. Drill holes for paddle park bungee
b. Fill with thickened epoxy
c. Re-drill holes
d. Attach hook with thickened epoxy

e. Install bungee (after varnish)
7. Install backband
8. Carve seat from minicell foam (underway)
9. Wet sand epoxy

10. Varnish
a. Sand

e. Sand
f. Varnish
g. Sand
h. Varnish
i. Rub to a gloss
11. Install soft padeyes
12. Install deck lines
12a. Build sliders for holding stuff on the deck (they are reputed to work much better than bungees).
13. Install bungees into mobies
14. Install weather-stripping into hatch seal channels
15. Carve & install handles/grab loops for bow & stern
16. See if it floats

The item(s) in blue have been added to the list. We also need to get a few things before it's done, or before we take it out on the water. I still need to buy deckline (the reflective stuff would be nice), a paddle float, & a pump. Currently, a custom-made Snapdragon spray skirt has been ordered through a friend that happens to be their local distributor.
