Hi Don,
Good to see that you are still at it.
You can do the stern at anytime but you have to make sure that the last few frames (well, at least the last one) at the stern are/is firmly in place as the parts you need to make must line up with that last frame.
You need to have tight joints between the sternpost, transom, last frame and fashion-pieces.

Hi Don,

I never expected you would give up, you certainly will finish it.

I would first do the stern as you need the space to work on it. After you finished the stern you can add and work from there to fit the frames.

As Gilles said most important is to work as precise as possible to get tight fitting parts.

Also on the other frame you still have a lot of fine tuning to do to get all of them at the same heights on the keel.

Good to see you back Don.
You have to do what is right for you. None of us are getting any younger, our bodies start to fail us...the mind is willing but the flesh doesn't want to go. Stay strong...do it your way.
Regards and best wishes.

Dear Don
It is true that physiological age has an effect, but when the spirit maintains a young attitude, it helps in coping and leads to great success as you present here in this forum. good luck with the Stern
