The stem was cut to a pattern, and laminated together with two pieces of 3/4" pine, and 1 piece of 1/2" plywood. The forward part of the keel was also cut to a pattern, and laminated together with two layers of 3/4" plywood and 1 layer of 1/2" plywood. Both pieces were then glued in place.
The stem was then carved down with a hand plane and sander.
A jig was made up to the shape of the skeg, which will be stack-laminated with 2" by 3/4" pine. 3 galvanized carriage bolts were bolted through the first 3 layers of skeg.
After the skeg was stack-laminated, it was planed down flat. After looking at the skeg, we decided it was too deep, so we cut a few inches off it with the skillsaw, and planed it again. The skeg was then sanded smooth, and a fillet was added. A little more filling and sanding, and the hull will be ready for sheathing.
