Update on latest project boat

The project boat is coming on well, then the the old ribs have been removed and the hull as been cleaned up of old paint and dirt under where the old ribs were. Just got to take the old bilge keels off and the it will be time to steam and refit the new ribs and then remove the two spilt planks on the turn of the bilge.
This photo is looking forward showing the ribs removed from the forward part of the boat.
 

This photo is looking aft showing the ribs removed from the aft end of the boat behind the centreboard case.

This photo is of the boat showing the ribs removed from the middle of the boat.
 
This week's work is to refit the new ribs in place after ther bilge keels are removed and then remove the two planks and refit new planks.
 Here is the oak to make the new ribs for the restoration boat and also the keel and ribs for the new boat being build by J-Star Boat Services over the next few months
