I got distracted until late today and had to leave the shop early. But I did get the last of the troublesome bulkheads done, so it is pretty smooth sailing tomorrow. Here’s the scrap of plywood that carried all the information on my thirteen-corned, compound-angled beast of a board. Each line points precisely to a corner point of the intended panel, and a mark along that line says precisely how far in that direction the corner lies. It transfers a complex pattern astonishingly well. The trick is cutting the 69° back-bevels.
The upper-left triangular piece is the one being spiled in the previous picture. With the cockpit nearly complete it looks from above a bit shrine-like. Perhaps a statue of the virgin and a few candles would look good on that shelf.
If this thing doesn’t work out as a boat, maybe it could have another use.
