B25: The radius of the tanks is determined: the 16" pizza pan made a good arc maker.
b17: The top edges of the bulkheads at the front and back of the cockpit are cut to their beautiful curves. Sawn cedar beams are glued the the top edges to help accept the deck.
b16: A close up of the port side cockpit tank. Note the cut out bulkheads at the front and back ends of the tank to allow access to the inside of the roll tank immediately after installation. Also shown is the first of the stern deck beams and its plywood web. This must be a strong point since it accepts the back of the hiking strap.
