Duck forms

I made 3 of the four forms for this boat.  The forth one is the transom.  The two forms in the middle are temporary.  Interesting to note that the  bow form holds the  bow deck station and the mid form holds the deck braces.  Another interesting thing is I think this building method is a forerunner to the stitch and glue method.  More on this later.

Also got the stem done and the backbone for the deck.   The boat is going to have a fine shear into the water.  I guess that's for pushing the marsh away.
