I am enclosing some photographs for you to see, as you can observe i am in the middle of the sheeting. Because I took special care with the frames and the longitudionals, the sheeting is falling in nicely with the help of pullers and homemade clamps. I used a Jig Saw (Makita, Bosch) to cut out the frames, skeg and sheeting. It will shorten the life of a saw but it is excellent at cutting accurately and curving. The best quality blade must be used. I expect and hope I will be turning the hull by Christmas.
