Hull construction

This is a photo of the hull, now with gunnels on looking toward the stern.
Note that the gunnels are welded on (rather than folded over) which gives a square edge.
A top rubbing strake, modelling wooden boat construction, will be added later. This will look nice, provide extra strength and give a little more width to walk along safely.
Temporary cross bracing holds the sides square at this stage. It will be removed when the cabin is on.

Today Dave also marked out the postion of the engine room bulkhead and after measuring the engine and marking it's postion in the boat we could mark up where the Kabola CH boiler would be.
