I do see a potential problem that I will be asking for some advice, I will have to post some picks of it later this week. When I laid the keel it was about 1/4 proud at the transom. Then I cut the notches and noticed the bottom of the transom was not level. I rechecked level at frame one and everything is fine and the would be top of the transom where the sheer clamp comes into the transom is level. I guess a lot of epoxy and sanding will make it all better. Pictures would probably explain better!

Well I got 25 sheets of 1/8 okoume marine plywood at Houston Hardwoods, this week, so I think I should have enough for the planking once I get the fairing, battens permanently install, camber boards install, so much to do!!

Image

I also picked up a $10.00 hand plane from harbor freight and started a little fairing. Works pretty good.

Image

This what I was taking about in one of my previous posts about the transom, I think once I get the camber boards installed, this may take care of itself, epoxy, epoxy, epoxy........

I am having a ball with build, learning something new all the time, and I can't say enough about all the folks on this forum, the best teachers, and encouragers out there!!

the fairing is coming along great Will :D glad to see another plane added to your toolbelt
on your transom/keel photo where the keel was sitting proud of the transom, it appears the chines are sitting in the transom fine so all should be level and straight across that point. solution is either the keel needs to be set deeper into the transom slot, or material has to be removed to bring it down to the finished surface of the transom. both solutions will work. plenty of thickness of the keel in that area so fair away. (you can also add to the inner side of the keel if you are concerned about finished thickness.)

Thank you!! I will take some off the keel to get it level with the chine. I keep reading about the tendency of hooking the transom up in some situations, so I am trying to avoid that as well.
I like that plane, it makes nice curly q's and it easy to see what your taking off, and it was cheap too.

I have doing a little fairing, on sliver at a time on the sheers and frames. Also been trying to finish fitting the last two battens at the stem. That seems to be a trouble area for me, but getting there slowly.

As I become a wood sculptutor with my belt sander and hand plane, has anyone else had to deal with the battens set a little too far forward for the perfect landing on the stem? What do you do, fair the battens fair to get the point at the bow at the centerline?

Will-
great to see such progress! :D
you could remove the batten, take some material and reattach. i spaced the batten that was nearest the sheer a little further down the stem. that gives an easier transition from the concave lines at the sheer to the vertical of the topsides.

The simplest way is to saw the batten off and re-align it .
Build yourself a plywood guide to help align.

I'm not sure I cut them away and reattach them very easily. I took an estimate with the tool you suggested and it looks like if I sand back into the batten 1/8 to 1/4 and fair it back into the batten that might work to get a good clean line.

What do u think about that one of thinking. Thank you both for the suggestions. It's a head scratcher, but I believe this might be one of those miracle recoveries, that I heard I believe once before.

:shock: :lol: :wink:

your way would work. add a little material to the inside of the batten running to the stem and it should give you the same result after fairing.
i can see yet another miracle recovery in the works :D
