Third float hull half

Back to start. Picture showing strongback and to the right using Newton's discovery to keep the Peel Ply tight over the newly laminated chain plate (red is lead).

Due to the relatively long (5 months) building period for my first hull half it felt very good to pick down the form frames and move on to the next stage. It all went quite fast; taking apart, setting up again and start planking the next half in one evening. I have made an album from the building of the third hull half. New this time was the way I made the deck flange (worked out well this time - finally), the introduction of the backing for the chain plate in the infusion and a new way to set up the deck flange mold so it could easily be removed after curing prior to hull joining.
