Sooky's gunwales (the sides) are playing a multipurpose very important role in the structure. They keep the arms of the outrigger in place, make the hull higher, reinforce the whole and give it a decent finish.

I made them from one single straight almost 10 year old oak. Stem seasoned, perfectly split in half.

Small victories. They do you good.
