assembling the hull 30

This picture shows that the hull is square to the table without any twists between the bow and stern. The two winding sticks and two spirit levels may seem overkill, but as the hull settles down over a period of days any twists or warps become immediately apparent. It is even possible to grab either the bow or stern with two hands and twist the hull into shape. If it looks right, it is right. At this stage of the fairing, I use a tape measure constantly to ensure that everything is exactly where it should be. Last of all, the bulkheads are wired into place, within a fraction of an inch, to define the final dimensions of the cockpit and cargo areas.
