The gunwales are on, but not the rub rails. I’ve been shaping the forward breasthook, it’s almost finished. The floors are fitted, but not yet glued in. I halved the spacing, it stiffens the bottom and supports the floorboards better. The trunk is in also.
When I built Grace, our Electric Launch, I installed rollers in the trusses of the shop to allow me to fit slings around hulls to turn them over. One of the best things I’ve done. Now I can turn the largest boat I can fit in my shop over single handed. And it is under full control.
Once upright I fuss with the sheer a bit. In this case the sheer was about 1/8″ high a couple feet aft of the stem. Clamping a batten to the sheer made a fair curve, and I trimmed the new profile. Much better.
The inwales are in two laminations, as shown on Iain Oughtred’s plans. Rather than taper both lams, I left the outboard lam full siding (width), and put all the taper into the inboard lam. The taper works out the same, and it’s a bit easier if you are sure you can bend the lams. Sapele can be a bear to bend. It takes most of the shop’s small clamps to glue these up.
The keel centerboard slot was cut with a router previously, so all I had to do to align the trunk was insert some temporary posts to center the trunk exactly over the slot. I think they’re still in there…
