The transom was cut from an oak board and planked with basswood strips. The Beagle's first real "details" are added over the flat planking.




Work begins on a cardboard prototype of the rudder system. This looks to be a real challenge. The plan is for the rudder post to go up inside the transom and not have any actual holes drilled into the pear wood hull. The main deck will overhang the deck support at the stern by about 1 1/4 inch.



Lengthened the sternpost to be even with deck support level and added some planking at the stern to make the overall angle better for attaching the rudder.
