    That's looking really nice there. You have initial stability and reserve stability now in good measure for both. I am a little concerned about the hollows at the bow in the bilge panel...freeship might say it is developable but my personal experience with plywood is that it tends to go convex rather than concave in such conditions. It isn't a big thing...it is simply that you might not end up with that exact shape when things go 3d.
