Usually the phrase "it comes to a point" ends with something like "where you just have to…". When you’re building a boat, coming to a point means a whole different thing.

Dane and I got the notch cut in the inner stem and Frame A and got the inner stem installed… the boat finally comes to a "point"!

One problem is apparent… the chine logs don’t match up right. One side is great:

The other side is short a couple of inches. Don’t know quite what happened there, but guess I’ll have to "stretch" it somehow.

Also took a first pass on beveling off the inner keel… that came out fairly well, although some trimming and filling will be required, I"m sure.

Time = 3.5 hours
