More progress this weekend.

With continuing good weather and a Bank Holiday weekend, more progress has been made. I sorted out my deck beam jig, and now have 5 beams completed with only 2 remaining. I've become quite slick at fabricating these after the first attempt, which had me covered in epoxy up to my elbows!

All the bulkheads and side panels have been marked and cut out, leaving me with a nice "kit" of parts for assembly.

Today I brought all the parts out onto the path and assembled a hull mock-up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that everything appeared to line up like it should do. Just the small matter now of finishing all the bulkhead cleats, floors etc., scarfing the side panels and I'll be ready for second trial assembly.
