Getting the keel planned to thickness and other jobs

This photo shows the marking out of the second part of the keel ready to be cut out of the seasoned oak plank
This photo shows the keel cut out of the oak plank and before it is planned down to thickness and edges trued up.
In this photo it shows the two halfs of the keel having been planned and edages trued up ready for putting on the building stocks when they are made.
This photo shows the other work in hand like sorting out the oars for a dinghy and the spars for another boat.
Other than the new build, there are a number of other jobs to do such as removing old planks out of a classic wooden yacht and an enterprise dinghy restoration to do. A Princess 25 to refit and a narrowboat refit to complete.
