Stitched, Tacked & Sheered

All stitched up.

After checking alignment, chines and bulkeads are tacked in place with thickened epoxy dispensed via a large syringe. This shows the bow section with a temporary form.

Sheer battens are ripped from Sitka Spruce, then fitted. They are glued and held in place with temporary screws. It might have been better tack the chines after installing the sheer batten .
