/ After assembling the stem, frames and transom of a small boat, setting up is a problem.

After the stem, frames and transom of a small boat have been assembled, the problem comes of setting these parts up and bracing them. In general there are four ways of doing this. The boat may be set up right side up or upside down, and with or without use of a keel form. Boats under 20 feet in length are usually more easily built upside down. The use of a keel form will assure the correct curve to the keel line. Notches are cut in the keel where the frames will rest, and uprights are fastened to it at each station, next to the frame notch.
