Falling in line

I had a vision for stabilizing the boat.    I thought of a bow and arrow...  I screwed cut in half 2x4s joining both sides of the boat.  I then put an arrow from the keel to the brace.  Those two braces brought the boat back into alignment.  (at least from my eye)  I then dry fit the transom back into the boat and it fit like a glove.  All the little broken deck frames got pulled back into alignment. In fact so much that I could put the nails back into the frames.   I'm liking this so much that I'm not going to do any more work today...

Along with that I soaked the drain plug in WD-40 overnight.  The whole thing came apart.  It's ready to go back in the boat.
