This board is for the port side Chine.
Hoping to laminate tomorrow based on predicted temps.

Slow going as we have been dealing with Elder care issues for the past week.
Both PS and SB side chines are laminated now.
Next step is to start shaping them
If you look closely at the pics you can see how the chines stick up above the level of the frames. This needs to be trimmed off.

Yep dutch.
Stick by stick. Forward we go.
Pulled the old chines out of the wood loft. I will use these as patterns when reshaping the new ones.
The last pics shows how many fasteners go in to this piece. Extrapolate that area to one that is 18' long.
Torchie.
