This morning we reinvented a big scarfing clamp to make eight-foot joints. We are making a five-foot by seventeen-foot sheet from whence to make the floor.

With that curing we put in the inner chines.

And then the long-awaited moment came of freeing her from the strongback.

Dang she’s cute. Very Briggsy.

We killed enough time that we could unclamp the widened pieces of floor and lengthen them for tomorrow’s flooring project.
