Stem to Stern

stem to stern 1

October 3, 2014  Hours spent building to date:  169

After two months of relatively diligent work, all the frames and bulkheads are ready for the strongback.  I have a pretty good metal ruler that will have to be retired at this point — some of the numbers are literally wearing off from measuring and checking the measurements so many times.

The problem with Tardis now is that she’s only about 4 feet long, but between now and Thanksgiving, we’ll be taking her up to her full 28 feet.

The shop is pretty much ready to go.  A lot of the stuff on the right will move during setup.

      I’ll provide a better breakdown in a future post, but I have spent about $7,000 on materials so far, and that should take us through planking. Add at least $2,000 more for glass and I think the basic hull will run just under $10k.
