Starting the Hull

This weekend I flipped the form over and re-aligned it, then started work on the hull. The biggest challenges here are at the two ends of the boat. The pieces require a LOT of fitting where they come together at a sharp angle. After about the 5th row up from the shearline on both sides, the surface begins to flatten out and it will be much easier to interlock the pieces.

Strips overlap at the stern and will be trimmed off later.

Here the bow strips are being blended using long tapers which are formed with a sander.
