The 'inwales' or internal gunwales are now completed including a new transom block which provides internal strengthening for attaching an outboard motor and enough wooden area to cut in a semicircular sculling hole.
The new internal ribs are now complete with six, 2mm laminations per rib. These ribs have greatly strengthen the hull. I can now move the dinghy around without feeling the hull flex and twist as it has done in the past.
When the central seat or rowing thwart is in place the dinghy will be stronger than it has ever been.
Apart from the added strength to the hull the new ribs will provide fastening points for wooden slats that will make up the new floor.
