Caledonia yawl project: gluing the centreboard well

So now that all the component pieces of the centreboard well are completed it took me a couple hours to double check everything so that once I have it all glued i would drill the centreboard pivot in the right location.

After double and triple checking squareness I glued it all together.

I also finished making the little shims that fill the wedge shaped gap between the frame and the hull. It is important to fill this as the chain plate bolts would otherwise deform the hull to meet the frame.

I then sealed the underside of the frame so that it is ready to be placed in the hull and not an area of potential rot.
