Week 7  This week we get frames 26 & 27, and the second part of the forward vertical keel.

The bits we received

And what we did with them

The first job was to join the forward keel.  Use the bottom edge to make sure they are straight as the top edge is not straight.

The keel is then glued in place, making sure it's upright of course.  The two doublers for the bottom keel have also been added.

The frames and the vertical keel doubler are all added.  Again, I used Lego to make sure they are all square.

You can also see the clamping arrangement to make sure that the front frame stays square.

Here's a close up with a clamp removed so you can see what's going on.  You can just see that I drew lines to make sure it was upright.
