Third pair

The third pair of strakes went on tonight. To cut all the wire ties, I am using a wire cutter that has been passed down to me from a grandfather. The tool may well be nearly 100 years old. Both of my grandfathers and my father were very handy guys; they all worked with their hands for a living. Although I did not inherit any of their craftsmanship, at least the use of this tool makes the boat building project that much more significant. Total hours 24.25.
