Well, it happened again. :shock: :roll: :evil: this time I added three pieces of 4" tape on the inside. one in the middle and the other two overlapping that one.

Tonight it was still trying to separate so I added a 4" band aid across the front

As you can see in my last picture I'm trying something instead of wire. Zip ties. :wink: the sides lined up so well at the chine that I decided to give them a try.

I have been looking over the shape of the bow in the earlier one and now the most recent post. It is my opinion that the bow shape is a wee bit fatter than it should be. I think you cut it with a batten. But if you look at the extreme foward, its like you have a fist shape which would cause the very tip not to close up completely. Whether that is correct it would be hard to tell. I bet if go back down the curve and sweep a bit and soften that sweep, you may not be experiencing the issue. I give you credit for being so patient though. When you look down on the bow, its also not that fair and may cause some blunting of the actual bow of the boat when done. So look at that before you ge too far along. The only thing that you may experience if you were to recut the keel line a bit more gradual is that your bottom panel may need to be a bit extended at the chine in the foward area.

chillin let me know if you like the wire ties better than the wire the only thing is the epoxy will glue them pretty good so you have to get them out as soon as you can or just sand them later on thats what i liked about useing them if i couldnt get them out all i had to do was sand them out

Red, as I said this is my first time using the zip ties and I only used them because the chine lined up so nice :D they are easier to use, but their drawback is you can't loosen them and adjust. I tacked glued between them, being careful not to cover them. I'll know more tomorrow. :wink:

Chip - Are you going to have your fleet at the G next year. It is about time for some of us to, er', "utilize" your offerings.

Dang it, I am hankering to get in the shop on the next build but the Admiral has me on hold. Can I come get my fix at your place?

This is the shot that concerns me. In my opinionated opinion something appears to be amiss. The panel is cut inproperly or the numbers on the layout needs some clean up. The side panels do not have enough room foward in the short run to make that curve in my opinion, leaning me to believe that some of the blunt bottom shape needs to be removed.

Image
Even with the shot just above that has the side panels in place, there sees to be some additional opening at the junction of the bottom to the junction at the two side panels.

FYI,
There are particular cable ties that have a little tabs that enable you to loosen them off. Get those and you can re-adjust as required.

Looking good, hang in there. It'll work out,
By the time I have built a boat, I'll be ready to build a boat....

Dave, you are the "robosander". :shock: :roll: :wink: :lol: Thanks anyway, but I think I have it covered. Today I bought A Oyster 4200 fairing tool :wink: :D Can't wait to try it out tomorrow.

Ok, Chip - you only have 4 pieces stitched together and already have 4 pages on this thread. What gives? Are you going to try to beat Roberta for the longest thread. Perhaps we need a new Guinness Book listing!!

Rub it in. I cannot even get Midnight out of her berth to work on anything else. The Admiral had me regrade the back lawn with new topsoil and seeding. They ain't no way I can pull a trailer across that until next spring. See, my shop and her temporary berth opens to the back lawn. So every time I use her, the make a mess of the back lawn with the trailer. Even with the 4WD on my truck, I spin tires backing her up the hill into the shop. It IS that steep!!!

So, I am looking for another shop area that is on the level and larger to work in. I have a friend that has an unused shop (used to be a contractor) about a mile away. We are talking. But he wants to sell and all I want to do is use it.

Grand Chillin, looking at your last few pictures, have you figured out what went wrong, where?

Cut quality? Layout? Templates off? Blueprints incorrect? Builder error? Zip ties?
