Stringers are on the Forms

All of the stringers have been laid on the forms and tied on with twine.  Today I demonstrated for the students how to steam and bend the ribs and then lash them in place.

Meanwhile, Rob Feeney's stand-up paddleboard is coming along well.  The entire hull and bulkheads are together, and we are almost ready to weld all the seams.
