Thanks Bogie. Hopefully I can finish her. My budget has shrunk considerably but I'll do the best I can.

Thank You Daniel. I hope to finish her as well.

Here is today's work.
The port and starboard side cleats are glued in place.
This is all that I have cut and fitted up to this point.

I'm back filling the top of the frames and stringers with epoxy glue.
Using the piping bag and spatula where the lows are shallow.

This is an overview of my progress.

That's a great photo of what is clearly a superbly constructed boat.

The stringer on the starboard side was the worst as far as level goes. Now that the cleats are on and level is established.
I have a considerable gap to fill there. My approach is to use scrap marine ply to gap fill the top of the stringer.
I used some 3/8" and 1/4" to get this done. Once the wood glue sets I can encapsulate that with epoxy glue.

Other than that I'm slinging more mud to get these filled.

Once all of this is done I'm going to use a pencil grinder to undercut the dowels on the cleats.
Then I will fill those with epoxy glue.
