Scenes from a boat building, January 4, 2012

I had previously described building this boat as having two distinct steps; the second being the assembly of its parts, and the first being the fabrication of the parts. (Or as Dave put it to his son, “You know how you like to build with Legos? Daddy likes to build with Legos too, but he has to build his Legos first.”)

But however it’s described, this week we have moved into the second step by beginning to assemble the backbones of each hull. It’s pretty exciting, at least to us it is!

By the end of the week I think we’ll have both backbones standing (inverted) with bulkheads mounted and squared.
