By October there has been much progress on the hull. Here workers are fairing frames for the next course of internal planks, “stringers”, which strengthen and stabilize the hull. Copyright 2017, Peter Pereira/The Standard-Times

Looking aft you see the great progress made since March. Keelson, clamps and stringers are complete and once the deck framing is in place the work on the deck will start. Copyright 2017, Peter Pereira/The Standard-Times
