March 17 - Taking shape
As more panels are added, the hull begins to resemble a boat.

I found that the bow and stern heights were not working as per Ted Moore's book (I may have made an error making them), so I decided to use only the center cradle -- this worked out great as the cradle adequately held the panel while I was putting the first stitches in. Note that I used a bungee cord (attached loosely) to hold the panel ends until I could get a stitch in place at those locations.
