All in position and glueing the breasthook to the stem. Once dry I'll glue the stem to the frame #2:

Thanks bill! If you saw the gaps up close though... ;)

I guess the bottom battens are next.
I've been looking at the photos on HZChevy's build, and it looks like they are notched into frames 1 and 2, which makes perfect sense.
But in the plans, i can see cutouts (circled in yellow) for the bottom battens in frame 0 (aka the transom), and not in frame 1 and 2, as you can see in the attached images.
Am i missing something obvious here? Am i meant to make cutouts so the bottom of the battens is flush with the frames?

Glueing the transom together. I'm back with epoxy now after reading up on it vs polyurethane glue.
