Frames #1 and #4

Frame #1 is made up as a bulkhead from 12mm (1/2″) plywood with a cleat from the same material serving as the deck beam #1. There is also a transverse stiffener and reinforcement for the notches of the chine logs. The opening for the inspection port is marked. The photo shows the aft face of the bulkhead. I will have to modify the building jig to accomodate the solid bulkhead.

After shaping #5, the frames #2 – #5 were sanded and the inside edges were rounded over. These frames are now ready for the plywood panels (#4) and gussets. The floor for frame #6 (standing up in the photo) is shaped and ready for attaching the futtocks.
