NOTE: When I wrote these instructions, Dumas steps 13 through 17 have been combined into one step.  Therefore, Step 14, Step 15, Step 16 and Step 17 have been deleted.  I did this to keep the continuity between this website and the written Dumas instructions.

Cement the rudder blocks inside the hull.

 

NOTE: You do not need to drill the holes for the rudders.  I did this to "test fit" the rudders into position.  This is because I changed the location of the

 
props, struts and rudders.  More on this later in construction.

  Cut and/or sand off the legs of frames 1 through 12 so that the proper deck curve or "camber" is maintained. Each leg must taper to nothing at the extreme outer edge of the sheer so that the deck can fit tight against the top edge of the hull.  You also want to sand the top plank to match the contour of the sheer.
