Building the hull

Note: This post continues from earlier Attaching the clamps to the clinker

Progress on the Lighter is clearly seen from the number of clinkers that have been added to the Lighter. The bow rises toward the keel and the shape of the hull is widening.

Inside the hull, beside the clamps, are some of the 4,000 copper nails which will be used.
When placed, the clinkers are staggered to allow distance between the joins.
