A stitch in time

The second set of strakes were stitched to the hull today, and things looked a little more boat like. The hull is taking a little more of its own shape, and depends less on weights and chocks to maintain a curve to the bottom panel. Interestingly, as I twisted wires, I listened to a PBS television show about the sinking of the Republic, a civil war-era freighter carrying a large cargo of gold coins. A commercial venture recovered the coins, while also retrieving some archaeological artifacts. May my little boat never experience anything that interesting! Total hours 23.25.
