Ok I may have underestimated the amount of work that McKay's drawings entailed. He has scarph joints in every joint in the frames. No chocks. No overlapping single angled joints. All scarphs... I may make an executive decision to use chocks for all the frames.

More surgery was needed. When I added bolts to this fashion piece I noticed it was shredded along its aft length. It must have happened when I originally cut it to shape. The shredded area was waiting for me to sand it down then it said "hello."

 

I chiseled it out and will replace it before I move on.

I noticed these six straps connecting the stern timbers to the top two transom pieces in the pic below. They aren't labeled and they are missing in all the other pictures so I'm not sure what they were made from. Considering the Bounty had to have all its iron fittings replaced by brass or copper when it was coppered by the royal navy (something they did apparently to keep the iron fittings from reacting with the copper plates, I'm going to use copper for them and for the five bolts in each.

You are doing a great job. It look fantastic.

I'm on my first time building a ship and also have the McKay book for reference on my kit build, so it will be of great interest to follow your work on scratch build of the Bounty.

 

Did you copy the drawings from the book or did you buy the drawing separate from the book?
