Finally, some boat building

So I was ripping my hair out trying to decide whether to go check out the
Iroko for the keel or wait to see if some Oak turns up and go back to the
saw mill to try and get some other bits instead.
I went with the latter and came home with enough Oak to replace the deadwood,
false keel, bowknee and mast step so we finally have something to get on with.

False keel

15"x 5" x 7' half what the length and weight of the keel. (and its heavy)
Note: the skill saw did not cut it, we used a big chainsaw 

bow knee

deadwood (much nicer)

The line on the right will not be cut, I'll leave the replacement  fuller than the original
