Week Sixteen – Tuesday

The stems were shaped to reflect the boat's Nordic roots

To meet our expected launch date we are putting in some extra shop time. At this stage of the construction there are lots of small jobs to be completed. Today was a good example: the frame extensions were glued in place, the shaping of the stems was completed and additional braces were added to strengthen the thwarts. The trailer bunks supporting the boat on the strongback were removed and are now fastened to the trailer frame.

Braces were added to the seat supports for additional strength
