Rowan returns to give Leo a hand, and we finish shaping the keel with Adze and power-plane. Then we carve some shape into the Stern Assembly, roughing out the Stern-post with a chainsaw first, before cutting the remainder of the Rabbet into the centerline. The chickens enjoy watching our progress.

In this episode, after roughing-out the starboard side Rabbet into the Stem, Leo makes a jig to transfer the measurements for the shape of the Keel Timber from the lofting floor to the boat itself. He then starts working on actually shaping the keel to its final shape, firstly using a TurboPlane wheel on a Grinder, and then switching to a good ole’fashioned Adze. He also adds some small pieces of Purpleheart to complete the shape of the Forefoot, and makes a small book-stand for his hosts here.
