    Apologies, 25mm by 25mm by 6mm would be better.
    There is no need for a longitudinal along the chine as the chine is phenominally strong in it's longitudinal direction anyway, it being a huge angle iron. Adding anything there would simply increase the odds of a hole being punched next to the stringer , if you ever pound the chine on sharp rocks .

    Hi There friends! What do you say about my "cradle" :confused: I will save a minor fortune to do like this, instead of buying a whole lot of steel! Can you see any difficulties that I missed?

    The RED lines is steelbars (?) to hold her!

    A couple of stainless sockets at the waterline let you insert sheer legs anytime from your dinghy , tied to the stanchions for drying out any time. A couple of ss 12mm acorn nuts, welded in flush, a couple of feet from them at 90 degrees to the sockets lets you bolt braces on the sheerlegs ,when the tide goes out, for longer stays. Very easy to do at this stage.

    Today the boatdesigner arrive. And belive it or not:) He was pleased what i saw. We took meassure in every direction (!?) And now he'll take the parameters home to calculate.
    But he sead it looked ok, even had a better "bow" than a C. Archer (sailingwise that is= not that wide!) So as you all can imagine (when listened to some of you) I'm real happy today! and yes you may congratulate me:)

    So you got the frames, longs and deckbeams in.. quite some progress :)

    Glad you did let go of the idea to reuse the wooden ones :) at that would have become a big mess.

    A bit hard to see, but I kinda got the impression that the topmost stringer is very close, or maybe over a seam. The pic isn't to clear about it. I also got the idea that the lines aren't fluid every where, at the second pic looking aft next to the cabintop? you can see the sheerline "dent" in a bit. But again, it might be the picture that destorts the line with the frame playing tricks with my mind :D , hopefully this will become ok once the deck comes up.. otherwise, you will need a lot of epoxy to get the line smooth :)

    I also have the idea that one of the frames is on top of a seam as well, in the first picture. Might be the picture again tho (fourth frame, top plate).
