Home Built Anacapa Offshore Pacific Power Dory Framed

Just got a link to this Youtube Video of an Anacapa offshore style Pacific Power Dory being framed up down-under. I like this video because it has some excellent examples of how to recover from small framing errors you may make when building your own boat. His use of small shims and wedges to fix oopsies are excellent and will result in a hull that is just as structurally sound as one perfectly fitted. I'm sure this will be a fine sea boat when the builder completes it.
