End of this week saw the new chine rail made and fitted. So now the new bottom planks have somewhere to fix too.
The new chine rail in position
The odd set back in the form of a bit of rot in the bottom part of the aft end of the engine bearer which needs cutting out and replacing with new wood.
This photo is of the first fur planks fitted to the bottom and before the first of the side planking starts to go on.
The new ribs and frames back in position and so the planks have good wood to fix too in the future
