    Also the bands seem to have been moved at somepoint in time, perhaps as the barrel aged.

    Phenomenal observations!

    Jon. Here's a deserving awardee for newly minted 'Sharp Eye' trophy. May I suggest deerstalker cap and calabash pipe.

    Always wonder how they drop hull lines building big boats outdoors, not to mention rolling it over afterward.

    I wonder those things also. All of those old skills are or have already died off along with those who knew how to do it. I am sure, if we had to, we could figure it out. Only thing is, we would just get the laser out and shoot it that way.

    Why would they need to roll the hull over?

    Many boats, at least smaller wood boats, are framed and planking begins upside down. I am guessing that one is 100 feet long, I doubt it was flipped. Too much risk of breaking it.
