Stem and transom

The stem has been glued up. Next, I need to trim and cut the notch for the keelson. The aft edges will be rounded over with 1/2″ radius. I might also take off some material from the fwd edges with a chamfer-bit. This will save a little effort when fitting the planking later.

Some of the framing for the transom has been glued down. I have used quite a few 1-1/2″ SS countersunk screws as well. The heads of the screws are covered with epoxy and sanded flush.
