Today I fplaced frames 135 and 136 (section 31) against the keel and frame 137 is drying. As soon as this is provided with copper pins,and sanded , then these can be placed.

I put the production higher. I have namely the end of next week vacation and I want to have the bow closed at the beginning of the holiday. Then the body can once again go out side to take pictures and get the workshop a cleanup.

Then we take a trip to Fijnhout to replenish the wood supply. I must have namely wood for planking and deck beams. The wood I have in my head. That you get to hear the new (sub) blog.

Last week I made good progress. Frame 134 is placed against the keel and sanded on the inside. I'm here again the same problem with the mold like the bow. The floating mold must actually up, but I've decided not to do this now and measure everything. These are just a few frames.

From here I build the frames on both sides closed and I work not with half-frames again. Frame 135 and 136 are almost ready to be placed against the keel. Then only three frames whose frame 137 4 mm thick, frame 138 5mm thick frame and resume its normal thickness. It is expected the hull must therefore about two weeks certainly have closed.

Frame 125 up to and including 128, section 25, are placed against the keel and the components of frame 129 are cut. The production is good, yet approximately 10 frames and then the hull is closed.


The colors do not look good when taking pictures in the workshop. That's because I shoot with workplace lighting. My wife suggested she wanted to make the photos, she namely followed several courses. It had to be done outside.

The photos may be there, and we do it again in a few weeks, because the hull is than completely closed.

The production is running again. Double Frame section 23 (spans 119 and 120) are placed against the keel. The previous 6 frames had to be sanded again. These frames were too far up. It took me a few hours, but I'm satisfied.

The inside line is good again. Up to frame 121

Frame 118 is placed against the keel, and I can now start frame 119 and 120 of section 23. Section 23 is fortunately a drawing available. The frames of section 21 were just the hardest part for me. They were six frames that I had to draw myself and tune in line. Here and there must be something sanded, but I'm happy with the result
