Construction, August 24, 2009.

The scow will be built in 4 sections, 2 middle ones with flat bottoms and 2 end sections (bow and stern) which will taper towards the deck. The sections will be bolted together on site prior to launching and taken apart at the end of the trip. Here is one of the middle sections being built. The wood pallets on the ground delineate the length and width of the 1:1 scale replica; you can see it will be a large watercraft.
