You get a grade of "C" for the clamping.

Frank, that is about all I ever received grade wise in school so guess about normal.

Bob, thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Pulled the wood off of the form and drew the transom seat out and cut it out.



rubber banded it to the form for support while cutting out


sanded the bevel in the aft face and placed in position for check


checked to make sure the decking and the transom seat was in the same plane by running a straight edge across the joint as demonstrated by the red line.


this will be set aside while finishing the deck beams and the stanchions. Then will lay out the plank sheer (also called: covering boards) boards and the sheer strakes.

and so another step on the journey...

Phil, when you say "seat", do you mean?

1a : a chair, stool, or bench intended to be sat in or on

1b : the particular part of something on which one rests in sitting

Or do you mean the following?

2a : a part at or forming the base of something

2b : a part (such as a socket) or surface on or in which another part or surface rests

Frank, it would be, 2b. In a real boat this would be fasten to the top of the clamps and quarter knees and the inside face of the transom planking and be as thick as the combined deck beams and decking. There would be a rabbet cut into the leading edge to support the ends of the deck planks. This piece of timber also supports the mainsail boom sheet horse.
The main rail cap runs around the top of the transom and is widened into the stern seat athwartship. Much like the shape of my transom seat.

It took me a bit studying the picture to figure out it wasn't a seat in the usual sense of the word. During my sport fishing days I sat many a day on the covering boards and had my feet on the “seat”. [:-captain]

Frank, here maybe this clarifies better. I glued a piece of wood under the seat to represent the rabbet face. So, here is a couple of pics with some deck planks and a placeholder for the stern seat. The man's feet would be in the way of the main horse.





sorry about the lousy pic. the placeholder is sitting on the wrong angle should be tilted forward but I don't have the bevel sanded in on the top of the transom.

Phil that's how I imagined it, only I'd be sitting on the covering boards. Something like this mate in the cockpit.

Carl B do you need some better definitions or a drawing showing the parts described? I would like to help you understand better.

Frank, nice looking boat but I wouldn’t go very far away from land in it. If that cockpit ever got flooded (and it looks open all the way to the windshields) there is no provisions to drain it. It is sunk!!

I’m with Carl on the vocabulary but I’m enjoying everything here. I can always look things up.

Phil, thanks for the offer to help.

As Mike says, it's not necessary to supply more detail.

We just enjoy watching your modeling skills on display!l

Still following along, well, catching up more like it. Looks great. I have a Royal Caroline I get back to once in a 'long' while, for me, although I love building them, I tend to put them on hold a lot. Keep the posts coming, Phil, maybe you will get me back into it

Here is a link to a short you tube video of me sanding the bevel on the top of the transom.

https://youtu.be/9COvIByXNSI

I had sanded a bunch off and here I am finishing it off smooth. I blocked the end of the emery board up to the level needed and held it in place. A very slow process.

Next up is to trim the sides and bottom of the transom to the lines of the template stuck on the outside. Will require a new #11 blade in my knife and might need to use more than one.
More fun for the finger tips[:-scared][:-ouch][:-censored]
