Moving on, I did get the water line installed. Could you imagine if the pieces actually matched up to the bulkheads? Well, me neither.

Wrong way here again. I thought it might be easier to install the side pieces to the bulkheads, then mount the rail on a larger surface.
Looks like I went too wide for my boards. Just a couple mm off.
I only found this out after fretting about the gun ports.
Lesson learned: the schematic call out the correct thickness of the planks. But you do have to measure the width. Looks to be that the schematic is drawn to size. PXL_20211120_013343200.jpgPXL_20211121_172419634.jpg

Here we go again. Rails are on. Gun ports and sweep ports are framed up.
Maybe but the time this build is over, I'll be a jig master. Small but simple jigs to keep me squared and true...

Working on the Stern tonight. The mooring line chock had me stalled out for a while. No laser cut pieces. No instructions as how to make it. Well not too bad for this rookie.

This is my second build. The first was the Polaris. Hopefully this build will go smoothly. As I look into the blueprint, and the directions, I do believe it's going to be quite the learning experience.
Hallo @Robert Sandefur
