Thanks Tony. On the Key Largo, the plans show a frame cut-out to accommodate the shaft and specifies reinforcing on both sides with plywood, both of which which I've done. From your post, it sounds like I just need the angle bracket to provide some extra reinforcement on that frame. That's easy...initially I was thinking I needed it on every frame.

Yes. I am building a Tahoe which is a Hankinson design and it shows the angle iron on that frame but I also had to take some off the next frame for the sump and did the same there.

Making slow and steady progress. Have the port side cover board shaped and the starboard side cover board roughed out. I built the front seat and hooked up the hydraulic steering. Will test the steering this weekend, as it's a two person job. Dashboard installed and am planning on adding the plywood on the inside of the dash board ends that I saw in the 20 ft Texas Barrel site (thanks Matt). I've also "bunged" everything, except for the rear deck, which I can't install until I have the steering tested. I may float the stern to see if there are major leaks as I've never done packing material before.
