Frame question on the Chinook

Postby SDSparky » Sat Jun 02, 2018 12:01 pm

Hi there, Ryan from San Diego. Long time browser of the forum, first time posting.Building Kens Chinook design and I’m down to my last frame assembly, but I’m thinking I’ve missed something. I did some temporary mock up to get a visual before I epoxy the floor timber to the aft side of frame 7 and it sits awfully high on the stem, see attached photos. It appears that I would have to fair off / bevel 2” of the stem down to the center line of the hull to keep the angle of the frame. Seems like a lot of material to remove but then again I’ve never built a boat. Double checked everything to my layout board and to the original patterns and it seems right and maybe it is?

Ryan.... Here is a link that Billy C posted back in 2014 of a "chine gauge": viewtopic.php?f=2&t=26481&p=161461&hilit=chine+gauge#p161461

These are easy to make and really work. it usually looks like too much wood has to be removed from the stem, but you will see when you put the gauge on it that things will work out. I hope this helps.... Neel
