Hoyte-- since misery loves company thought i'd relate our weather today--heavy--heavy--torrential rain and I am out working on a dock contract (boat build money)until 15 minutes ago. Finally got the B&B back in seasonal running--got my latest Jeep mobile for summer use and within the next few weeks finally back on the boat build. Your's coming along nicely and with the weather you guys are having i think you might consider bigger hulls and animals two by two . Take care keep the powder dry ---Geo.

Storm went ashore a little while ago in Dixie County but it is still windy but not as wet. Maybe tomorrow there will be more to show. We'll see.

I got a little done yesterday. Attached and glued one bottom to one hull and fitted bottom to second hull without gluing.

I use the term keelson for that item myself but I'm not sure about it, since - from its name - a keelson is clearly associated with the presence of a keel. Modern materials and construction methods make the correct use of boating terminology a challenge sometimes.

It's hard for a late-in-life converted, born-again boaty like myself to get all those arcane words to remain in my antedeluvian brain and there are times when I am deeply indebted to the younger generation for that all purpose, never-incorrect word "thingy".

I may add a small keel later on to improve tracking if need be. With or without it I think the term is a valid one.

From "Boats, A Manual for Their Documentation" by Paul Lipke et al., page 79.

Thats where the name of the early down east "heel tapper schooners" came from-- their profile resemblance to shoes and the slapping noise(tapping) made when their stern undersection hit the water . So you are a traditional boat builder after all . Good progress Hoyt at this rate you just might dip them into Shag Bay (on the charts)(Shad Bay locally called) this season afterall.--- Geo.
