Given all the excitement of the weekend, we told the building gang they were welcome to take Monday off. However, a return to mild weather and their own general enthusiasm for the project, had them at the boatyard at the regular time.
Paul started off in Plant 2, carving the rabbet in one of the sternposts. The rabbet is the groove or recess into which the planks will fit. Later he and Ollie were out in the yard - in shirt sleeves no less! - checking the fit of the sternpost into the keel.
