Dan is doing a great job!!!
The wife says I can have a mistress as long as her ribs are made from white oak.

I believe that is the 1938ish one that Dan is restoring.  He was working on it when we went out for the symposium.

Backbone, sheer clamps, and transom are in place.  Almost time for planking!

Why are the 2 forward stations made from a different material than the rest ?

The forward 2 stations are structural plywood stiffeners that will stay with the boat when it comes off the mold.

The bulkheads are used in lieu of frames as they join the P & S hull panels together, thus effectively making the forward sections much stronger. Think of the hull panels and bulkheads as "I" beams. The bulkhead material is of laminated 1 mil veneers, hence they are very stiff for their light weight.

She looks great.  Has she a planned launch timescale yet?

And the new project is ?

This should give the new project away, if you haven't already heard:

No ... I haven't heard.  This is reminiscent of that 'guess the picture' thread from a few months ago.  My first shot ... The Marlin ?

Oak and an early traveler... I'd guess Marlin too!
