Work on frame 12

Hi everyone,
Well frame 12 proved the hardest to template and fix. took just over 3 days to get it glued up. It had taken the most damage as the widest beam frame. Also this frame supports the saloon floor and paneling for the 'Head'. When the boat was flipped over the panel and floor were pushed up and caused even more damage to the deck and cabin deckhead! It is now all glued up and ready for drilling the nail pilot holes. The floor support has been lifted back in position and this time is secured with a bronze bolt through the new frame, instead of just resting on the hull planks. So another improvement gets done, never had the time to fix that in the past.

more coming
