Pre-shaped hull sides are delivered and measured out for size
In the meantime the base plates are cut to the shape of the bow and stern then welded into one continuous base plate to which the hull sides are fitted, these being re-enforced with ribs along the length
Next the swim was fabricated and the stern tube hole cut out
Then the stern base plate is added with a hole for the tiller arm and lugs for tying on the fenders
The length of AmyJo is just starting to become apparent as the stern sides are taking shape
Above can be seen the beginning of AmyJo's josher bow
The next few shots show Chris in the boat for scale. I just realised Chris is the first out of both of us to board AmyJo.
|One VERY happy Chris
