In this episode we install the Fashion Pieces, which will form the connection between the hull planking and the transom. We have to cut the heels, drill and chisel the notches in the centreline, and bed them with Red Lead paint and bedding compound (Dolfinite & pine tar). Rowan also works on fairing the bottom of the frames in preparation for the cast bronze floor templates. Finally, I work on adjusting the frames to be fair at the sheer line, in preparation for the beam shelf (sheer clamp) and bilge stringer.
