Another Tricky Shaped Panel

The last front chine panels are an even more curved shape than the rear swim ones.  A template was necessary.  Last time I made one out of hard board but this was time consuming so I decided to try wallpaper.  It worked a treat.

See how curved it is in different direction

Starboard side fitted

So apart from the front and rear bulkheads which will be done later, the lining is done.  That made short work of 27 sheets of ply.  I have loads of offcuts though.

You will notice one of the windows is out.  This is so the oak window surrounds can be made so they needed a window frame as a template.
