Ottimo lavoro!

Before fixing the dolphins I believe I must cover the hawse pipes with lead foil.

For this, I thought of using the commonest fishing sinkers, long enough and suitably machined on a lathe to obtain a kind of tube:

The final result; I'll probably still reduce thickness because it seems a bit 'too much, but I'll do it later, when I finish the walled inside starboard and adjusted the length of the lead lining.

Looks very nice, but you might wish to coat the lead with lacquer. This will prevent deterioration into lead salts from contact with air later on.

I started working on the transom, probably the less successful because of some asymmetry that I hope, completing the work, it is not too obvious.

 

Meanwhile, I trimmed the excesses of strakes:

I built the two stretchers of the transom:

And the crowning that supports these stretchers:

From this picture I get the impression that the courses tend to rise slightly to the left, although it seems not live; mah!

After several attempts came bad, I managed to make a window more acceptable; I do not know if I can, but I want to try to fix the two hinges to be able to open; will be very difficult to fix the hinges to the threshold ......... In the photos the  window is stuck

I started the construction of the gunwale, starting from the bow where must engage in the oarlocks. Everything is only hinted at plenty fat: it will be finished later
