Building CW975 "Concept Won"

Most of these photos are from the building of my own CW975, in the early 1980s. The photos are pretty old and some are badly faded. Nevertheless, they do show some details of the construction and may be of help to other builders of this and other multi-chine plywood designs.

Page 1 - Bulkheads & Framing

Building stocks with bulkheads being set up. In this case the stocks were flat on the ground because it was not practical to set them on legs set into the ground.

The bulkheads are standing on legs and braced to make them stable.

Same stage looking aft.

Note that the frame has temporary bracing timber across it, to hold it to shape.

All of the bulkheads are now set and await the transom.

These frames and bulkheads are in the region of the saloon. These two frames are temporary, so are made from cheap or scrap timber and will be removed after turning the hull over.
