Building Frame and Station Molds

The building frame and station molds are complete.  Nothing in the picture will ever be wet, but what is done now is the foundation for the rest.  Now its a matter of attaching a transom, keelson, apron, inner stem, outer stem, keel, skeg, and wrapping the whole thing in okume plywood, and fitting out the interior.  Oh... and painting, varnishing, making spars, rudder, oars, and dagger board.

But from here on out, crafting actual boat parts will be involved.  Time to go buy some wood.

My back-of-the-envelope time estimates suggested I would have 22 hour into this part of the effort.  It went much faster than that... 8.5 hours total.
