Scow construction update: June 20, 2010b

Julie got all the painting done but still needs to do a few minor touchups. We got the tent on the frame tonight, everything fits great. One drawback was when we tested the tent for waterproofing, the water dripped through the roof and soaked through the sides, so a new problem that will have to be addressed and soon! The yellow nylon ropes seen here will be replaced with natural hemp rope.


  1. How would have Brown weather proofed his tent?

  2. This is an unknown. I have heard one story of a Brown field hand using melted wax to waterproof his tent. Darren
