The Starling Project - Part 12

Work is now well underway. Two new cockpit sides have been cut, glued, fitted, nailed and filled.

I made up and glued in a couple of transom backing blocks to through bolt the rudder gudgeons to.

The first of the two bottom panels are now being fitted after having been cut out with an electric jig-saw. Plywood is easy to cut with a jigsaw and planes easily with a sharp wood plane. These bottom panels will be screwed down along the line of the keel and along the line of the chines. So far, so good.
