More work and more progress. More planks are being shaped and attached to the Chalupa as her shape looks more like a ship everyday.
Port/aft plank after steaming and clamped in place. This plank will be above the water-line
Floor board supports in the aft section with clamped plank…the first clamp in the upper left is a custom made clamp with a deep opening which we call a “man-clamp” to hold the planks low against the ribs (the C clamps don’t grip as deep). Just to the right of the 1st clamp you can see a “Dutchman” cut into a plank and then another Manclamp on the next rib~
The back of the boat~
