Getting Thinner Yet
In preparation for installing the sheer planking that will finish the topsides of the hull, we worked on hollowing out the interior of the hull at the bow and stern. Until today, the hull was only at thickness at the three stations where we had let in the temporary frames.
We used a set of interior molds, a couple compass planes, the gutter adze and someone may have even broken out the chainsaw. By removing this excess material in the bow and stern we have set ourselves up to let in more frames that we can then bend our cedar planking around. With a little more work, we will have much of the interior hull as finished as we need it for now and then will do a final sanding later on.
