From Peter Heading: 

'I'll admit I sneaked in an hour or so early today ,marked out the trench for the keel and used a very noisy power  saw to cut out the edges of the trench. Much hand chiselling and rabbet planing later the keel dropped into the trench and onto the hog ready for glueing at a later date.  The oars consumed most of todays labour with  one oar almost ready for final shaping and sanding .'
