Assembling the Frames


The floors and frames have been cut, fitted, sanded, and fitted again. Now it is time to put them all together. I used bronze fasteners along with Titebond III wood glue. This will give the frames a strong connection to the floors. 

The outer corner of the floor/frame connection will be cut out to fit the chine log at a later point. The tops of the frames will be reinforced by the sheer clamp, gunwale, and inwale. For now, the floors and frames look like the characteristic "rib" that will support the dinghy.
