Neat boat, Ferdy!!
Does the moose hide tend to soak up water after a few days? Do you have to dry them or let them rest for a couple of days? I know with walrus skin umiaks, they say that they have to be pulled out and allowed to dry so they don't become waterlogged. Just wondering how deer hide or moose hide react? I also noticed that there isn't a whole lot of sheathing like you see with bark canoes - just one long piece along the bilge. What about the floor area? Does that have to be protected? Weight?? Carrying capacity??
PS: right after posting this, I saw the thread for the video, and may have found answers to some of my questions. Interesting stuff. Thanks.
