Today we finished notching the chines (24' or 2"x8") and sistered the beasts.
|The plywood under is just to provide us with some semblence of a level work surface.|
|This is the sister/butt block joining the two halves of the chine. No, no, that's the wife, the sister is the wood thing.|
|It amazes me how the boat always goes from small to huge to small as you build the thing.|
Tomorrow the joined chines will be attached to the ply siding and the sides framed in, getting ready to add the bottom, at which point this will look a whole lot more boatlike.....or in this case, barge like.
