Dinghy Chaps day 4

Got a lot accomplished today - may not look like much, but the dreaded bow panel is in place!  It's tough making that rounded end fit well with non-stretchy material.  Lot's of darts (and a few seams ripped out and re-done).  Keep in mind that the dinghy is not fully inflated and the chaps are not attached yet to the boat - so it will look tighter when finished.

The end caps are treated special since this is where all the water will end up - it needs very porous material to help it drain.   Made a pattern and cut the triangles of Phifertex.

Rough fitting.

And end caps in place.  That's it for today!
