The lashings at the cockpit, Long Shot Skin on Frame Kayak.

The boat is basically held together with bits of string. Each of the stringers is attached to the frames with artificial sinew; a wax coated synthetic string with a break strength of around 70lbs. Since each joint consists of multiple wrappings of the sinew, it is many times stronger than the break strength of a single strand.
