The build is coming on if a little slowly :} Seats are all in decking done boiler and burner made just on with the fittings then a steam test
The original boats of that era had about 3/16 to 1/4 timbers
Tony Bird has a couple of videos of his recreation and shows a simple bending technique
Basil Harley did a write up and a set of drawings for the later Luton Bowman he named Celia May
Keep an eye on youre builds weight as they are not the most stable of designs
