Hello, today I am fitting the CHINE LOG, and started at the TRANSOM. Quite a lot of material needed to come off where the LOG fastens to the TRANSON, so I took a 1" X 2" STRAIGHT board approx. 96" long and on one end duct taped a very coarse rasp to the board on the 2" side and at the end. I then laid the board in the cut outs for the CHINE in frames #1 & #2, then overlapping the TRANSOM by a couple inches I moved the board with file attached BACK & FORTH thus removing the material not needed. I kept a little pressure on the board so as to make certain such contacted the forward frame notches, and thus the result was a perfectly faired TRANSOM notch. Using a rasp by itself meant a rocking motion, where as the 96" board with rasp attached assured NO ROCKING.
I plan on doing more of this by using contact cement and gluing coarse sand paper on long boards that will overlap other frame members thus giving me a very natural contour, or fair.
This is NOT the TRICK OF THE WEEK, but a process that works for me.
Thanks for hearing me out.
