Slow progress

I've not been idle, but there's not a lot of progress to report. The baffle cleat on the transom is installed after a lot of head scratching as to the best way to cut and bevel it. All cleat bevels are now complete and the entire hull has been temporarily assembled using screws. All the holes have been drilled for the ring nails and ready for final glue up.

At the weekend I built a trolley to keep the boat on. This uses four heavy duty swivel castors which allows me to move the boat around easily in the confines of my boat shed. It also allows me to bring the boat outside to work on when the weather is agreeable.

Work on the vent trunk continues; when that's complete I'll be in a position to wet assembly.
