Build Progress

Side panel construction!

Dec 30, 2016

The sides of the boat are made of marine ply. Three sheets of 4×8 joined together (4 inch scarfs). Glued and glassed, then glued onto the frames.

plywood gets clamped on to the frames for a rough fit/sizing.
it was my Christmas present – big visible progress!

Then Frank set up a jig to cut the scarf joints to join the ply together. I was stunned that he could get such clean cuts, totally smooth and 4 inches wide.

here’s the starboard side panel all glued up and glassed. It became the template for the port panel.

this is how she looked just before glueing the panels on
