I did use 403 this time. :wink:
looking at this enlarged, I'm wondering if you started the stitching process here while flat, then proceeded down the straight after the cure, would the compound radii have worked?

Frog,
somebody else suggested the same thing, and looking back that might be the way to go. :D But as usual I followed the instructions and Glen even predicted there being trouble with the bottom at the bow "Pulling together the forward bottom requires considerable force." other than that setback I'm pleased so far. :D

While the configuation of the bow will surely be a workable solution, I am not sure if the average off the street Joe will find that an easier method and just may complicate the instructions and create a blob of glue and fill. Surely any increase thats generated by easing the transition, of course in my humble and opinionated opinion in the bow area will be of no real improvement in the ride and will probably be a non-issue because of the speed that most of these boats generate when done. Remember these style boats do not run on top of the water and are used in mostly protected areas. So keep the blob and possibly an entirely different looking two sides too, which will probably be generated unless a builder generates a temporary mould in the foward area, from my perspective.

His link shows an entirely different boat that only needs to open up to a shorter width also with a sharper angle and probably would not apply. While I also support that setup, the bottom on your boat especially in the stem will experience a more intense stress factor. So don't be so hard on yourself sir.
Dave your point was? 8)

Installed the first of three keel laminations tonight, the first one is a piece of 2" wide 1/4" plywood, the next two are 4" wide. we had to get creative with the weights. The bricks look like a line of freight train cars. :roll: :wink: :lol:

PB, I haven't forgotten about your picture, but I need to pull her outside to get your profile picture and it was calling for rain today. :( Dave, the pontoon is on hold for right now. I was informed that it wouldn't be for long. :shock: :roll: In the mean time we started on the bottom battens tonight, they will consist of a 4" wide piece of 1/4" plywood topped with a piece of solid 1"x2".there will also be a 1"x2" batten between there and the sides. I hope to finish the keel tomorrow. :D
