Holding her own shape.

The keel is now bolted in and permanently assembled with 5200 and the chines are screwed and bolted to the frames as well. It's been many years since this boat was this straight and true.

Now just a final fairing of the frames before routing the rabbets in the chines and keel.

Just like a picture from Dannenberg's book. I'm cutting a 3/4" deep rabbet, 7/16" for the planking, 3/16" for the diagonal mahogany inner bottom, and an extra 1/8" for 5200.
