Dry-fitting upper deck and poop deck.


Inner walls of the upper gun deck planked and painted. Now installing the camber beams to support the main deck.


Main deck & poop deck pinned in place to facilitate sanding the hull in preparation for planking.


Port side bulwark pinned in place. Master plank installed. Now I can proceed with the first planking of the hull.


Foam used at the front bulkhead to aid with the plank bending at the bow. Next time I'm going to use balsa. Foam is too soft.
