This is dad getting the hulls ready for the cross members.
Dad gives one more last check before we make the glue
These are the spacers we used before putting the boards down 'flush' with the hull
The cross members are ready for glue!
they are all glued!!! yaa!!!! next we need to put the pieces inbetween the cross members.
The pieces inbetween the cross members are glued, and now we are dealing
with another problem: how to haul the boat onto the trailer without busting the front
crossmember. The construction calls for two angle irons runing the entire
length of the boat with 'fingers' grabing each crossmember, then a 'v' frame made out of channel grabs on
about half way up and comes to a point about 2' infront of the deck
A close up of one of the 'fingers'
the drilled 'finger' ready for painting.
Dad applying some radius compound before we put the mettle on.
