80. Cutting for Propeller / Boring for Prop-Tube

Cutting the Prop aperture and boring out the hole for the stern-tube are intimidating jobs – you only get one chance to get it right. But it’s easier to tackle these tasks before the planking goes on, and I’ve had the help of a shipbuilding engineer to work out the best shape and size for these alarming new holes.
Also in this episode, I finally make the template for the final shape of the transom, and Pete fairs it into the rest of the hull very nicely – more-or-less completing the tedious but valuable fairing job. The shapes of the lower planks get lined out and marked on the frames in preparation for fastening the floors.
