Scow and general update, April 4, 2010.

Winter has more or less gone now so Perry will soon resume work on the scow and other wood projects related to the trip. This includes a toilet (wooden box with toilet seat attached on top) and a rowboat. I am attaching here pictures of the scow as it appeared today and a small model of what the rowboat will look like. I built this model mostly out of wooden tongue depressors such as used at the doctors office when he says open your mouth and saw "Aww". The full-sized rowboat will be about 9 feet (3 metres) long. It differs from the style used by the American Museum on their scow trip, but is similar to that used by the Geological Survey of Canada when they did fieldwork in Alberta during World War I.
