I went to the boat for an hour this morning and cut out four more
frames and brought them home to find nice replacements and cut
them out roughly.
Its quite enjoyable work looking for suitable grained pieces and
cutting them out, in fact I enjoy the whole process of framing.
Just as well as this is far from the last of it to be done.
Next I will take them back to the boat and do the final shaping.

The old top section of the frame on the right has rot around the iron fastening that attaches the doubler so I'm making this futtock longer to compensate for it, It'll save me having to remove the upper half from under the beam shelf.
