Joining short frames to the keel under the centerboard trunk

by Dennis
(San Francosco, CA)

I am planning to begin restoration of a 26' Monomoy whaleboat.

I have a partial copy of the plans including lines and some details, but not a complete set.

Previous owners started and stopped this project many times, resulting in missing pieces and incomplete assemblies.

My major issue is how to tie the short frames to the keel along the centerboard trunk.

As the boat is now, the center section of the keel containing the centerboard slot has been removed but is sitting under the boat.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood Boat.com is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
