Re: New Member

Hi, Get yourself a few hand chisels, and they will make quick work of adjust your batten notches. Try to fit your battens and keel even wit the frames, it will save time in fairing. As far as your concern over the sheers and chines being cut too short, I think 12' is long enough to wrap around an 11...

Re: Aussie Gentry

Looks great. I like the wooden windshield brackets, they are a nice alternative to cast metal.
