After cleaning up the shipyard a bit, here goes.... New framing wood has been ordered but due to Jeff at Hobbymill's schedule it won't be here until late (very late) April. I'm planning on using up my existing stock of swiss pear, ebony, pear, silver maple, and cherry and maybe some boxwood if I see fit.
At this stage, I'm poring over the plans and notating such things as wale, gunport, and deck clamp locations on the individual frame drawings as I'm planning on putting some reference points on the frames physically as I cut them. This should solve some of my previous issues.. With 60 frames, this is going to take a bit.
I have a new build board laid out and prepped but not cut. The frame reference board is ready to go.
I'm still making a final decision on whether to stick with cherry or go with boxwood for the keel, stem, and stern items. Version 1.0 sits forlornly in another part of the shipyard waiting for various bits and pieces to be cannibalized. I'll be re-using my old fabricated measuring tools and making some new ones.
Hopefully, by the time the framing stock arrives, all the plans will be annotated and scanned, all the bits and pieces from V 1.0 will be cannibalized, and bunches of new bits will be fabricated and then ready and waiting.
It's time to do this beast right and proper... and to have some fun doing it.
