Their only temporary forms. They will be removed after the hull has been turned.

Interesting. I haven't seen one built like this before.
So I guess it's sort of like stitch and glue, but with a hard-chine. Are there any permanent frames in the boat?

Yes once the hull is flipped, there will be support frames added via benches and storage. However it is not a stitch and glue boat; it has as you mentioned a hard frame, which the plywood will be attached to with screws. The plans were designed by Ken Hankinson. After years of talking about beginning a boat project, it has be dream come true to finally start one. The only problem... I cant wait to finish this one so a can start another!
