JW's 'umber build

This thread is posted partly by not so popular request (2) but mainly 'cause Terminator thinks me middle name is Manos and that is seriously concerning.

Plans changed part way through. There was a decision made to turn the boat into a cabin rib. The general layout is shown in the CAD.
