I spent a couple hours cutting my long stringers this evening. Now to get some floor space cleared in my garage so I can cut out the parts for my keel.

I expect it will be "measure three or four times; cut once" for me. Now I have a very tangible incentive to clear the floor in my garage!
On a sad note, one of several people I know who has taken special interest in my boat project passed away a couple of weeks ago. Ron Hegewald, thank you for your encouragement and enthusiasm. I am very sorry you didn't live to see this photograph.
