Something didn't look quite right so I shot some levels and took measurements etc and found the bottom to be 5 milimetres out of square. mutter mutter fart snort. this probably wouldn't be a big deal in a power boat but the plan for this one is oars mostly and I just hate a row boat that wants to go round in circles.

Long story short, I have cut the transom out and the bottom off the sides for the rear third of the hull, including the rear ribs. (not pretty) I have set absolutely level cross bars on my bench and tied the front half of the boat to one of them. I will stitch and glue the sides to the bottom so that it is square and then do the transom in the same way.

Will add piccies soon. Too ashamed just now. (heading out the back to slap meself)

In the mean time, been doing houswork and a little of this,

and this

and I'm sure bloody Chuck must have been camping somewhere nearby
