Caledonia yawl project: Fifth strakes 

I’ve squeezed in a few visits at the end of August and early September to be able to glue up the fifth strakes. 


Last night I came with my little accomplice to check on the set of the epoxy and remove the clamps.

strakes number six roughed in


We pulled out the sixth strakes and just clamped them on before doing any bevelling to see how they landed. They seem to look quite fair and they really complete the turn of the bilges so that the boat’s form is really taking shape.
