Garvey “Jimbo” – Tabbing the Boat

Sunday, I put in 3 hours yesterday and 2 hours today tabbing the boat between each stitch and along the edges of the transom, bulkhead and frame. As you can see at the bow I covered the stitches completely. I will have to use a propane torch to heat one end of each stitch to remove it from being embedded in the epoxy wood filler. I did the tabbing over a two day period to let the chine, bow, transom, bulkhead and frame set, so on the second day I could step in the boat to complete the keel line without it moving out of square.
