Making it Stiffer!

In addition to the carbon fiber stringers running along the bottom, I've also added a couple of plywood stringers running lengthwise along the keel joint. This is to stiffen the hull panels but it also creates a sort of backbone for the boat making the whole boat stronger and stiffer along the longitudinal. I also got the transom re-installed and glued into postition. The transom is tied into the plywood stringers with a couple triangle shaped gussets for added strength.
