Caledonia yawl project: port and starboard strakes #3

This is getting exciting, the third strakes are close to the boats waterline, so we are getting a good sense of the boats under water pofile.

It amaze me how little rocker there is along the length of the keel and how much nearly flat surface there is that is almost the full beam of the boat. I can see that despite being a double ender this boat might be quite capable of surfing down the swells on a downwind run.

Cutting the gains was much easier this time around than it was on the garboard planks. After so much slow progress with not much boat to show for it, I’m finding it immensely satisfying to attach these planks.

Four more to go!
