Green Boats begun and continued

Today I worked on the sneakbox, using a marking gauge to trim the splined cedar deck and then handplaning to the marks. To complete the curves in the cockpit, I used a batten held in place with awls. The deck is almost complete with one more plank to go. It was fitted and primed today, paint tomorrow. Last, I drilled holes for attaching the deck boards to the hull while Doc screwed it down with #10 bronze screws. Another crew was setting the bronze strapping for torsion control in the frames of the new A-cat, Spyder.
