A hull takes shape.

A few more pictures of the progress in building ‘Waratah’. All the frames are up now, and the longitudinal stringers in place. In the next few days the frame will be further stiffened with flat bars and angle bars. Then the strongback has to be checked again for being absolutely level, before the hull plating can start. If all goes well, this will be Monday February 4.
