The Keel and stations mounted on the build board.  The Keel is tack glued in, as these formers will be removed and bent frames installed after planking.

I hope this works.

I don't want to drill any holes that will show when planking is finished, but the bow needs to be attached firmly to withstand the bending and clamped plank ends.

The same goes for the transom.  It must be mountde firmly, but not interfere with the planking.  The screws will be removed and a piece of veneer epoxied on to finish off the transom after planking.

Test fitting the shear clamp.  This will be the deck level.  The planking will extend to the upper end of the formers.  The plan is for a gloss black hull with a bright shear plank and cap.  It's starting to look like a boat !
