« Part 11: Leveling frames Part 12 of Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser series Part 13: Update ... snail speed! »

I’m not sure why I only took one photo. There are 13 frames plus the transom and stem. I trimmed about 11 of those. Pre-cutting the groves really helped! The spacers did too. I will not complete port side before beginning starboard. To help keep everything in line, I will work side to side as I move forward. I’ve also learned that it’s A LOT easier to bend the wood for a 25.5’ boat than for a 14’er. The curves are not as pronounced. I still need the clamps though.

Then I threw some ply inside to make some shelving.

Those straight grain chine log help a lot. Looks like it’s coming together steadily.
