Fifth Frame is Out the Door

An important frame has been completed and it happens to be the fifth frame that will go up this week, complete with a watertight bulkhead. I won't go into the details of how the bulkhead was constructed without consulting Harold first but these fotographs by Dan Tobyne give a good sense of the thickness of it. This is a crucial element to complying with Coast Guard regulations which is the intent as Harold plans to charter the Ardelle to passengers.  Nice work, and this frame is going to be a heavy one to put in place!
