Keel Timbers

Here's the log we've been waiting to cut, 21' and probably weighing in at around 4 tons. It's right on the limit and capability of all the machinery and equipment and presents quite a challenge to cut. A superb log that is going to provide the stern section of keel and rudder skeg.

Cut into 6" planks it will finally be shaped to 5 1/2" X 24" before building the prop shaft timber and horn timbers on top to make the complete stern section of Thordis.
