A bigger hammer

LBT member Lachlan Carlson seems to have taken to heart the old adage that the solution to an intractable problem is a bigger hammer . 
You can see his point when you observe the size of the ribs he has to 'tap' into place (second pic below).

The boat is the 'Western Flyer',  the vessel which was central to Steinbeck's 'Log from the Sea of Cortez'. 

It is currently in a yard in Port Townsend, Washington State, USA, Lachlan's home port. 
LBT members may remember Lachlan as one of the team of boat builders we hosted over summer.
