Fwd deck structure

Made good progress this weekend.  The fwd structure is in the boat.  I don't like to skimp on this part of the boat because it takes all the load from the mast.  The two stringers from the center section to the shear serves two functions.  First it provided lateral support for the kingstud.  Second it provides backing for deck hardware.  It's where you put all your turning blocks for sail controls  The big gusset provides stiffness for the hull
