Strong-back (2)

The notches for the frames in the strong-back are cut. I will have to modify the fwd notches for the plywood gussets in the centre of the frames #2 and #3. The frames fit fairly tight in the keys. The frames rock about 1″ for and aft at the chines, which is enough to sit them dead square in relation to the keel (strong-back).

I have hogged out the curve in the strong-back for the stem. There is still a bit of material to be taken off, once I have made up the stem.
