Log Chines and Shear Clamps

We're going old school here.  That's what the plans call the chine and shear. Technically that's the correct part name as that's the part that holds the sides to the bottom and the top to the deck.  The plans for the Duck were drawn up probably in the early 60's.  The boat has stood the test of time.  The plans also call for resourcnal glue...

I made both parts from a premium 2 x 4 x 8 that I got from Lowe's.   The wood is spruce and it is relatively knot free.  I'm surprised they sell this stuff.

The short ones are the logs and they are 1"x 1 1/4" x 11'   The chine clamps are 1"x 1" x 14'

The transom is ready for instalation.
