This is how I measured for the angle to cut for the sheer to bend around:

Grooves cut ready for sheers. The jigsaw (new Bosch) died during, pity I lost the receipt:

Looks good!

I must say, looking at your solution of getting to the sheers (i.e. turning the boat and building form over) gave me a chuckle. Your boat is so much smaller than mine. Adding my sheers was a real pain because of lack of space and the closeness to the floor Old knees don't bend so well)!

Very cool.

So next I have to fair it all. Any tips? I was planning on just going to town with my power planer and belt sander.

What next? Paint the frame or attach the bottom ply first?
Also, how thick is the skin ply? I can't seem to find a number on the plans.
Thanks all

chubs:
On a smaller sized boat such as yours, it likely doesn't make a lot of difference whether you paint the frames before or after doing the planking, though on the larger sized boats, the consensus seems to be to finish the frames first.

In terms of thickness of the plywood for the planking, it's likely quarter inch/6mm. I expect you received with your plans a set of instructions called "Building the Pee Wee". If it's like the instructions that came with my boat plans, on page 1 you'll find a Bill of Materials listed, and the BofM should list the thickness of the plywood used for planking.

:D If you paint the frames before putting ply on ,I'm not sure if you should coat the areas that gets glued to plywood(chines and shears and battons)It might hamper the glue joint-just my 2 wooden nickels.

The bill of materials is on page 5 in the instructions. The planking is 3/16" or 1/4". Looks great so far!
