Keelson

After cleaning up and levelling the cap of the keel, the fitting and fixing of the keelson was a straight forward exercise. Some strange clamping techniques (“clamp the clamp”) were called for at the bow and the stern. The push down sticks make the thing look like some sort of submarine …

Other than that, the second bottom panel has been joined and is curing on the floor. I also joined the cradle parts to pieces of 2×4. The two spacers (cut from MDF) are too flimsy. Instead, there will be a couple of 2×4 to which I can fix some wheels.
