Well the new mahogany (Sapele) sheer-strake is now on the boat and the transom is fitted and fastened in place. The sheer line has yet to be finalised. The original builder had the sheer flat so the his young son could get in and out of the boat easily. The owner is hoping to use the boat as an ersatz tender to his big boat and would like the sheer to have a bit more spring. We’ll decide on a final line later.
