rip it good

A lot of miscellaneous prep before final assembly. This included finally getting to ripping the gunwales and outwales which makes now 108 feet of 2x4 ripped by hand or hoof.

measure once, epoxy twice.

bulkheads finally ready…

also reinforced the cradle we’ll use for assembly which does, yes, look suspiciously like something you might otherwise flip over and eat a sandwich on.

One cat, one cradle

but the good news is: we’re all ready to put her together now.
