July 2018 - Ready to move on to the sheer

July 17, 2018

We also were insetting bulkheads as we went along. Our lads have a hard time touching their toes and kneeling on sore knees, so we put a couple courses of double planked cedar/ mahogany on forward and aft bulkheads and full width of cedar on half-bulkheads fore and aft of the "engine room." (You'll note the floor timbers are rabbeted and that there's an obvious problem with nuts and bolts protruding from these floor timbers, as mentioned earlier.) Guess the ghost of NGH took the day off...

And finally ready to move on to the sheer, but #199's beautiful lines are starting to emerge!
