Step II - Chines

The chines run along the bottom of the boat. They join the bottom to the side of the boat.

They are a little tricky to fit. The instruction in the book are detailed and very helpfull.

Thanks to Colin's cabinet making skills they were fitted very snuggly with small glue lines.

It is starting to look a bit like a boat already.

The piece of pine down the middle of the boat is a temporary backbone. It holds all the molds in place while the chines and garboards are fitted.
