The CNC cut cockpit sole waiting for installation. It looks like Ben is using Douglas Fir for this part. Note the puzzle joints that are used to assemble the various parts. The plans call for butt blocks installed at the joints, but Ben and I discussed it and we are not so sure those are needed. The sole is 3/4" plywood and probably won't move much once it is covered in glass! The aftermost sole part was a little too wide to drop in past the shear clamp, so it will have to be trimmed a little bit. Another revision for my drawings!
