Thanks Donnie, I hope I don’t put everyone asleep lol.
Don asks how I was cutting the notches and I replied by bandsaw, that is correct but the notches in the hog on the keel assembly drawing need some special care. The notches on the right hand need to be cut at an angle due to the length of the hog. I show this in the second and third photos. The first photo shows the keel assembly patterns attached and the last shows all the parts rough cut over the plan. The next step will be a lot of sanding and glue it together.

I like that approach to the lap joint. I've got to get one of those saws. I'm just adding a small strip of 1/32 by 3/16 tapered at the ends to the preceding plank to make the step. I made my wale just over 5/16 and will be dying it black too. AlohaThanks Dave, I am using European Beachwood for the planking it is easy to bend. The strips were cut on a Proxxon table saw, cut the notch for the lap joint with a single pass through the saw. Started with the garboard strake and a bunch of clamps.
