Barbashela Log 07 Feb 16

07 Feb 16:

Went under the boat too look for evidence of a keel batten. Found paint evidence of where it was. Keel batten was about 4 inches and went back about 4 feet.

Hunk of frame. Had a little dirt on it.

Didn't have a Spanish windlass handy to draw the starboard transom frame to proper bevel angle...

Cut a new transom frame, beveled and screwed in place.

Skipper is in charge of this, 1-2-3-4 layers of paint, but at least it was thick and lumpy...

Skipper is gaining ground on the aft seat. It will be horseshoe shaped ad have a slight crown. And it will not be grey..or white..or green...

Cutting plank bevel onto the transom frame arm.

Transom will be this shapeish, with a sculling notch.

FMI: "Barabshela" a Rowboat of Captain Thomas Leathers' Design for Ms. Winnie Davis
