Gunwale forms and tip shaping

Today I made the gunwale forms. Five forms used to form the rails and
hold them in place while adding shape to the bow and stern ends
and helping in placing the deck-beams.

The middle form.

One of the end forms and one of the spreaders wedged into

All the forms in place now time to saw the ends to shape
and close to gaps.

By running a Japanese saw through the ends while they are under pressure
I wittled away at the gap closing it and giving the end more surface.

Both ends finished and now I've stretched
string between the ends to see that everything
lines up and is centered. Looking good :)

Next up, the deck beams.
