Greenland Skin On Frame Build 3


Wood arrives today and gets distributed to about 18 people to begin the actual build, last meeting we took body measurements and recorded them on a wood “story pole”. For this session we will be laying out the gunwales – the main support beams of the boat that the ribs will go into. The gunwales will be marked for the ribs then the cutting of the ribs will begin followed by shaping of the ribs.
