Once the hull was painted, it was turned over and the gunwales were installed.  The joints along the bulkheads were filleted with epoxy putty at this point, and all the small temporary screw holes were filled and sanded flush.


I wanted a classic skiff interior in the open center section of the boat, so I cut tapered frames to run from chine to rail.  These will take the seat bearers also provide a place to attach things in the future as we get used to the boat.  This photo also shows the supports for the end decks clamped in place, and the big bar clamps holding the shape of the boat while the frames are jammed tight against the chine log.


The frames are all in and the deck framing for the hatch openings is in progress.
