    So the bottom is on and am now looking forward. What is the thoughts on using that same old heart pine from said roof deck for the shear clamp. It is old but strait and can be made to fit the bill. Other than that the bottom went on very well and it is really starting to look like a boat Eye am watchin you

    Thanks again. The only reason i was looking at the cypress was a fellow locally said it was flexible and folks round here used to use it in that kinda situation. i can find SYP in clear and machine for a much cheaper cost so that is what i will be doing. Working on the chine battons at the minite.

    Technical question. I have started looking for some wood for the shear clamp and have found a couple rough sawn 3"x12"x12' pieces of clear white cypress. They are not cheap and my question is. Is it worth the cost to make life a little better on myself for the shear clamp. i figure i can resaw and end up with the grain going in my favor.

    Transom looking very nice

    Started in on setting up the frames, transom, keel and such. so far everything is working out nicly. Had a mad brain fart when i realized i had machined up the keel a little to wide but after a little thinking it has all worked out i believe. I have had to shim up the first bulkhead by approx 3/8" but as i go aft temp frame 3 needs about 1/4 and down to nothing. Other than that it all seems to be going very well. Gonna start in on some stringers next.
