There is something about cutting the 1st piece of wood the commits you to the build process . . .
Cleaned out the garage the weekend . . . this bay will be the boat shop for the next few months.
The shop is about 8′ x 15.5′ . . . it’s gonna be tight, but the 17-ft kayak up on the wall was built in the same space.
Tonite, I ran to Home Depot and bought a few 1 x 4’s, then assembled one of the two temporary frames using No. 8 screws.
The finished temporary frame for Position 8. This frame is 4′ wide and will hold the two sides and the the bottom in place at the boat’s widest point. It shows the cross-section of the cockpit where the sailors will sit. This frame will be removed when the hull is assembled.
