A forum for contacting other builders of Ken Hankinson designs. These designs are now a part of the Glen-L family.
Sapele got delivered today from Reel Lumber in Anaheim. It was milled to my specs, S4S, and two thirds the price of the rough grain VGDF. Thanks for the suggestions, fellas. Now I can get to making sawdust!
So I've finished building the transom, keel, stem, and frames and just finished lining them all up on the form. I was wondering if there's any insight some of you experienced builders might give me regarding attaching all these together. I'm about to attach the stem to the keel, but the rest is all just clamped in place. Can I epoxy (and screw) them all in place at this time? Or do I need to see how the battens, chine, sheer, etc all fit before I can make these connections permanent? Here's a pic.
