Rudder and Stock

With the hull at a standstill until I turn it over, I made a start putting together the rudder and stock.

Both units were cut out and laminated together, and I've now started shaping the blade. This will keep me busy for a while, but hope to turn the hull right side up, probably next weekend.

Chine Runners fitted

"Johanna" is now six months into construction and her hull is now watertight and float-able!

I finished fitting the chine runners this weekend; they just need a final sanding and they'll be ready for glassing. I may leave this until the spring as the short days and cold nights are not ideal for sheathing at the moment. I'll probably turn the hull over and continue work "right side up"

It was a nice sunny day today, so I took the opportunity to tidy up a bit and take a couple more photos without all the junk onboard!

I've got a bit bored with looking at the boat upside down, so I flipped her for an underwater view!
