looks a lot like a boat now
May 03: Yesterday,
I trimmed the transoms and bulkheads, and transferred
the lines for these pieces from one side piece
to the other. I found a few slight errors when
I transferred the lines that locate these pieces.
I assembled the hull sides to the bow, stern,
and bulkheads. I had an error in depth of 1/4
inches on the sides; rather than worry overmuch
about the extra, since it was uniform, I decided
to build up the bulkheads that are short in height
by that amount. I used a batten to see what it
would look like to reduce the sides to the heights
of the bulkheads, but the curve was no longer
step is to install the gunwales and chines, then
spent so far: Add 4 hours for trimming
pieces to get ready to assemble the hull and 6
hours for nailing and gluing sides to bow, stern,
and bulkheads, for a total so far of 36 hours.
so far: Holding at $127.38.
