Measure twice – cut once

Today we had some excellent advice from the Captain. ‘Measure twice – cut once.’ We’ve certainly been double- and triple- measuring most things along the way, and every decision gets thoroughly reviewed by triumvirate. Hopefully we will find it’s all paid off, and our cuts are true.

Today was quite a scary one – this is one cut we really don’t get another go at. Thankfully, Ian’s skill with the jig saw gave us a beautiful even curve on one side. Jethro’s attempt on the other was slightly wobblier – if the boat lists (or leaks) to port when she’s done, we’ll know who to blame.

You can’t see it in the photos, but we also have a stack of parts ready and set aside – tomorrow will be a day of lots of sanding and planing, as we do our best to make the curves all match…
