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.
