Taking shape.

Stern shot Bow shot All the panels are now stitched together but not yet spread to the correct width.

Next the spreader beams are fitted to force the sheer to the correct profile, the forward two spread the hull out and the rearward three pull the hull in. Once this was done the bottom of the hull fitted the support frames perfectly.

Couldn't resist glueing in the first bulkhead.
Lesson 1; when filleting, dont use a mix past it's gel time. Otherwise it went very smoothly. One down five to go.....
