Designs for inboard or outboard power
Im taking my time ,transom done and i had to make a new stem.i messed it up when i tried to bevel it on my table saw.i glued and screwed it to the first frame.i work the next 7 days but i have a little time before work.leveling frames and lineing them up .i have 2 that are alittle off >the side frames i mean>> sanding will do the trick.
hi,i mounted tHe transom but i didnt cut the angle yet .whats the best method for doing this .its to long for a tablesaw.maybe mount a long board on the back of transom thats cut at the angle and use A handheld circle saw? and go slow !i wouldnt have to cut it all at once just alittle at a time. oh yeah its framed also >so ill be cutting 3/4 in. ply and 1 in. white oak.>mount the board >use it as a guide and cut
The skilsaw is the way to go with the transom laying flat on some sawhorses or table with it hanging off. Just cut it a bit wild and then when you place it back on the strongback you can refine it with a grinder or belt sander when you get it set to the angle that you need or like.
Man ! im anal ! im too worried about screwing up ! have too move it ! transom is notched and i was trying to make the frames vertical.by useing some long scrap wood and finish nails to hold them straight up. that didnt work after an hour of getting pissed >then i layed my keel in the transom notch>>>>>>>GAA why didnt i do that first worked great! i October already ! the thought of snow makes me nervous i wanted to get the hull done and sealed before that>we shall see !
