Construction resumes...

OK, so I haven't been real diligent on documenting my progress.  That changes today.  Rewind to March 2015...

When I left off the boat was still flat.  I built a holding fixture to dangle the boat from while the wood adjusts to it's new shape.  The next step is to glue the butt joint at the transom and stitch it up.  It's starting to look like a boat now.
Here's the butt joint at the aft end of the boat.  I tapered the leading edge before gluing it in.  This was a good call as the transition from a smooth curve to V shape along the keel is exceptionally fair. 
Here's the boat hanging out with the stiches in.  I stitched the two hull sections together using 18AWG copper wire every two inches.
Here's how she looks all stitched up and restrained in the holding fixture.  The boat spent the majority of 2015 in this position.  See ya in the fall, boat.
