Planking is pre-cut right out of the kit, including the hard-to-hand-make scarf joints
The KDI sets up on a pre-cut strongback composed of chipboard. The whole structure -- which includes all the bulkheads and centerboard trunk -- interlocks to make a rigid frame over which the planks, glued in the foreground, are bent.
The first plank is a "plank-keel following by two planks which are "stitched" at the seams before being glassed.
Fitting of interior components, like solid-wood deck supports and plywood tank tops and seats.
The foredeck and coaming has been installed.
Centerboard and rudder are NACA shaped foils shaped by hand and template.
A lot of the structure inside -- bulkheads, tank sides and tops, and frames are filleted in place after turnover.
The trunk is installed as part of the set up. When the boat is turned over, most structure on the inside is complete.
This New Jersey builder is smart: he is painting the interior before the deck are glued down.
