Cutting More Bulkheads


I finished cutting out the bulkheads for both hulls yesterday. Here I'm using the jigsaw to cut the stringer notches in the bulkhead sides. Just as I've done with the hull sides, I carefully lofted and cut all the bulkheads for one hull and then used those for patterns to cut the parts for the second hull. This saves a lot of time if you have the space to store all the parts until you get around to using them. When I start building the hull in my open shed, I'll have room to build both of them side by side, but I may not start the second one until the first is completed to bunk or sheer level.

Hey! Thanks for the link to my blog – I've linked to you too! The 26 really is a fine boat (better, I think, for its size than the 30!). Will look forward to updates!
