Shaping the frames ….

The shipwrights have shaped the frames ready to start planking. Many hours of planing and measuring have occurred to get this result. There are 50 frames on each side of the hull. The photos show frames 1 to 23 with number 1 frame being at the bow. The starboard frames are shown but the port frames will be shaped soon and planking will begin in a symmetrical manner. This means that if two planks on the port side are attached near the keel then there will be 2 planks attached on the starboard.  Every plank will be attached not alternate planks as was done with the attached upper planks. Alternate planking was used as the planks would have shrunk too much before caulking occurred.
