'Round and 'round we go again

and again.

One of the toughest parts of assembling one of these boats, other than falling on your head is bending the bottom panels around the forms at the bow.

There's a lot of tension built up in those panels when you ratchet them into shape. I've run into a little problem with aligning the panels correctly but have gotten some tips form other TW28 builders to try tomorrow. You can see it better here where one bottom panel overlaps the other.

That took 3 attempts to get to that point. I'll try again tomorrow. Other than that the only other thing I accomplished was putting a door on the front of the shed where there's been only a tarp for the last 5 months. Doh!

A few pics from ON HIGH!

Chillin' time! :-)
