At last we can make progress with the new dinghy

Now that we are taking delivery of the larch log, we can start to make progress on the new dinghy.

The main jobs over the next few weeks is to get the log sticked and put to one side while we get the building jig into position in the workshop and set and leveled up. Once this is done then the stem and apron and the transom can be fitted to the keel and the shaping of the keel to the stem/apron can begin as well as the same at the aft end with the transom and its knee which will support it.

Once the stem and transom are in position then I can make up the spoil planks to mark out the planks to be cut out of the larch. then the real building can start and a new boat will be born.
