As of yesterday the hull sides were on and Dave is currently working on the stern.
I'll be going down to have a look on Monday and we will discuss the exact shape of the bow before cutting steel.
Prior to this I am doing my homework studying photos in books recommended by Dave:
Walkers of Rickmansworth - A Walker
Boatyards and boatbuilding - R Wilson
A canal people - S Rolt
Although the subject is the boating families operating in the Hawkesbury area Rolt contains some excellent close up photos showing details of the boats in use.
I shall of course update the blog with photos of the build to date ASAP after Monday.
