Got much needed help from my son Harry with the gluing. A bit if cleaning up tomorrow and then it's time to plane the chine logs.

Chinelog No.2

Fitted the second chinelog today. Still using clamps, but at least tried the plastic bag method to get glue where it's supposed to be. Went very well. Did'n use ziplock bags, but bags made for cake decorating.

Chine logs

Both chinelogs planed to size and smoothed.Only one of them glued as I ran out of clamps. I felt very smart when I prepared a small gauge to assure that the chinelog was glued with 10mm protruding. I also prepared for the excess glue you always ends up with and had some small reinforcement pieces for the transom ready, so now that's done as well. 
The gauge
Lots of clamps needed if you go against MIK's advice to use drywall screws...

Scarfing continued

Nothing that shouldn't be glued together was glued together, and the scarfs turned out quite nice so I'm happy.
