Absolutely love the Shinto saw rasp and now that I have been using a Japanese pull saw I will probably never by anything else.

Got one of those as well. That is what I used to trim excess overhang on the bottom side juncture.And your project is looking real good. Nice place to work(jealous here). Steve

Thanks. The tent has been a good investment. Looks like the same saw as mine.

These are the tools that ended up fairing most of the oak. I have some great tools given to me by my grandfather and father in law - and continually “borrow” tools from my dad.

The sides are all fitted and predrilled and ready for epoxy

The boys and I finally started glueing and screwing a side panel today. Everything went great until we heard a loud CRACK! When we attached the plywood to the sheer it snapped the joint between the chine and frame 1!?

Do any of you guys see a problem with me just screwing in another 2” screw above the broken one? Should I try and sand out the old epoxy and squeeze in some more?

Wow that's interesting. You could run a saw kerf through that joint, epoxy in a shim, and run a screw through from the outside. You'd be sawing through a silicon bronze screw but that shouldn't be a problem if you use a circular saw.

Thanks Hoodman - scary using the circular saw on the boat but the fix worked great

Glad the fix worked. Many issues can be fixed with modern epoxy and creativity :) Your boat is looking good.
