All stations are up!

The set up of all the moulds went quickly.
We cut out the stem support brackets and added them to the set up.  
All the moulds are clamped on until we get them parallel and square. We built stands to hold our stem guides at the right height at both the bow and stern.  Once we get  the stem guides centered on our set up and squared to the moulds, we'll glue them to the floor too.   
Putting the gussets back in after they were modified to fit the set up. 

The shop has great natural light...

 While the new gussets were added to stiffen the frame; we epoxied the first 2 frames together and clamped them carefully.  Once we got them perfectly lined up, we let them sit over night until the epoxy cures.
