Dec 14 - Bevel the sheer edges
This isn't a really clear shot, but here's what's going on. I'm using a coarse rasp (you can also use a block plane, but mine hasn't arrived yet!) to bevel the edges of the side panels. The panels which will be the top of the hull, and the edge deck panels will each be bevelled to a 45 degree angle, to allow the deck to align to the hull better.
