Gunwale and deck, dry fit

Planed the gunwales to shape (a slight taper forward) and dry fitted them, with some help from my brother-in-law and his son.

It is tricky to get the angles right, will try again tomorrow

 Then it was time to dry fit the decks and plane them to the precise shape.

Done, I will add some more screws when I glue it to make sure it aligns with the shear

Below are some pictures taken by my sister during the week

Me in the boat on Saturday

Fitting the deck on Monday with my nephews and sister

Wednesday, I am planing the Queen plank while Tom is shaping the forward deck

Time today (well actually yesterday): 2.5h
