The gunwales were glued in pieces onto the inside edge of the hull.

The gunwales are complete and planed flat aft of the foredeck and angled to the camber of the foredeck near the bow.

The foredeck support beams: a set going to the chainplates and a set going forward, all terminating at the mast post. A centerline stringer from the stem to the top of the foredeck.

A close up view of the compression beam from the mast post to the chainplate. The plywood brace helps to tie the beam to the hull. It's cutout allows the chainplate bolts to accept nuts and washers.

The radius of the tanks is determined: the 16" pizza pan made a good arc maker.

The top edges of the bulkheads at the front and back of the cockpit are cut to their beautiful curves. Sawn cedar beams are glued the the top edges to help accept the deck.

A close up of the port side cockpit tank. Note the cut out bulkheads at the front and back ends of the tank to allow access to the inside of the roll tank immediately after installation. Also shown is the first of the stern deck beams and its plywood web. This must be a strong point since it accepts the back of the hiking strap.
