The yard is full of deep snow, but we have no time to spare! Finn and Leo cut out all the remaining Stern Assembly pieces from the huge Purpleheart timbers, and then use power-planes, hand-planes, chisels, and a new router sled, to shape them to match the templates as precisely as possible. Then we have to try and assemble this extremely heavy and expensive jigsaw! Once they all fit together, we use the forklift to hoist the whole Stern Assembly upright so we can check all the joinery from both sides.

In this episode, while the team keeps on building new frames, Leo makes the templates for the Stern part of the Centerline, from the lofting floor. The ShipSaw gets some love and affection, and the framing of the centre-section of the boat is completed! Kirt and Leo talk about his really exciting idea about speeding up the next phase of the project, and despite a snowstorm, Leo make the first few cuts on the Sternpost timber with the Chainsaw Jig.
