Hull construction

The floors are ‘spot-welded’ and bulkheads 1, 2 and 7 are wired to the bottom panels. The bottom panels are joined and/or tacked to the keelson between bulkheads 1 and 7. There is a little bit more of cleaning up to do (sanding). After spot-welding the bulkheads (except B1 – that might need to be a bit flexible to get the shape of the bow right), I will put down the structural fillets for the floors. I think it will be a lot easier doing these fillets before the side panels go on. After that, a couple of 1/2″ pieces of plywood as temporary floors will provide a solid platform to work on.
