Good morning, all. I am starting to get back into the workshop now. I spent some time cleaning up the shop and I am almost ready to cut slots in the plywood jig that will hold the molds in place for planking. The plywood jig also holds molds #1 thru #10 in place so I can refine the shape of the stern.
Happy Modeling.

Much to my surprise, I have finally carved the rabbet on starboard side of the keel. Port side is patiently waiting for me to finish the rabbeting! Hopefully I will get through it this week. It took me a long time to muster up the courage to do such carving. Moving forward should be easier now.
Happy modeling.

Sooo, as I am looking at the keel & temporary bulkheads for the lobster boat, I am wondering about adding extra planks in the forward portion of the boat because if the high-rising bow. I shouldn't need many because of the horizontal planks at the stern twist about 90 degrees to attach vertically to the stem. But I need to figure out how many extra planks will I need to fill the forward height and from what point in the length of the hull do I start these extra, tapered planks?
Any thoughts & ideas are greatly appreciated.
Happy modeling.
Steven
