70% of the 9mm pieces have been cut out. There are a few giant ones remaining, notably, anything that requires a scarf (scarfing is the term used to describe joining two pieces of wood together). On Rio, that involves the hull bottom and the cockpit sole, along with the planks and the deck.
After practicing scarffing with my block plane, I've determined
that there's NO way I'm going to be able to use just a block plane for
the entirety of my scarfs. It would be feasible to do so on the planks,
but on the larger pieces (the hull bottom and cockpit sole), it'd
take a considerable amount of time. So, I purchased the West System
Scarffer. It should arrive on Wednesday.
And all of the lightening holes have been cut out:
13x17 Tempress hatches.
Slow and steady.
