Great framing progress ….

November 23, 2018


Left photo is from the previous post 2 weeks ago and the other photo shows the progress on the starboard side.  Several frames have been removed, some completed and  others commenced. The photos below show the port side with similar progress. Each frame requires 8 to 10 laminated sections to be made and fixed. It can be time consuming  removing the old frames as the ceiling planks in each cabin need to be preserved as most do not need to be replaced.


The next photo shows the keelson and frames in a rib-like pattern. The battens running parallel to the keelson are used by the shipwrights to shape the inward-facing side of the frames. This is necessary to obtain the correct shape for the inside of  the cabins, engine room etc.
