Construction Pictorial

Construction photos of the Sissy-Do; built and photographed by Glen Witt.

Fig 1: The transom, seat frame, temporary frame, stem and breasthook are ready for assembly on the building form.

Fig 2: The frames are mounted on the building form and the keel sprung into position. Note that the stem/breasthook is anchored to the form to prevent movement.

Fig 3: The notches for the chines and sheers at the transom frame will need to be beveled for those members. After beveling chines and sheers to match the stem, coat the contact areas with glue and starting at the stem, progressively fasten to the seat frame and transom.
