More on the building forms

I finally got the building forms faired. This is is my first time using this system.  On other boats I use a hard strongback made from 1x boards made into a box. The designer of this boat specified a ladder like strongback where the forms interlock.  The interlock makes it hard to fine tune the forms.  However, I got them mostly straight and we can now start with strips.  I'll put duct tape over the form ends because I'm going to use hot glue to hold the strips while the yellow glue dries.  That way we'll get a boat with no  staple holes.
