Re: V-DOry Bottom Planking question

If you have the Boatbuilding with Plywood book it talks about the battens either notched or floating. As far as the side frames touching the planking it's not a problem as long as they are fair. They can touch the planking and be glued to it. You just don't want to put a bunch of screws into the fra...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Keeping it as low as possible is a good idea. Mine went onto the trailer immediately and I never bothered to take the wheels off because I needed to move it around. Lower sure would have been nice when fairing the deck framing.

I kinda lost control of the flip the last few feet, the bottom paint will need some touch up.

Re: Squirt Chine Trouble-Fairing Questions

For the most part, a 1/2" or 3/8" asymmetry isn't going to matter a whole lot in most places. However, I think you may have to let that starboard chine loose and trim it just a little to get it to match the port one. It won't take much so don't go crazy there. It will probably take several small nib...
