266 Hrs – Making Good
Tonight I used the full hull length stringers to restore the fair curve linking the bottom corners of all the bulkheads with the correct positions on the stem and sternposts. I clamped the stringer in place, marked the line, removed the stringer, cut back the ply where necessary then fixed the stringer with screws from the inside, cutting it to fit at stem and stern. I did this on both sides. I now have a fair curve and a little less ‘wobble’.
Photos on the left show stringer ready to clamp up and the stern panel marked afterwards. You can see how far out I was!
Photo on the right shows me cutting back the stern panel I fixed in the wrong position. I am using my magic Exact saw to do this easily.
Bottom right – screwed in position and looking pretty!
