Work on bottom of dinghy largely complete

I have finished the wood working on the bottom  of the dinghy. Keel, skeg and skeg wheel epoxied into place and I have epoxied an aluminium rubbing strip onto the forward part of the keel. Also glued on two rub strips where the chines will rub the ground.

Turned boat over and clamped the external gunwales in place. These will be easier to fit than the internal ones, but will need to be planed thinner at the ends, which will actually look better. Much sanding, fairing an painting to do yet, not to mention the rowlock supports. Need to get some decent oars from somewhere.
