Designs for inboard or outboard power
DR.Bryan this post was very helpful to me. Thanks for sharing it made the planking process easier.DrBryanJ wrote: ↑Mon Nov 02, 2015 3:59 pmSands35, here is what I am doing. There may be an easier way, but this works for me.
1) I placed the board to be fit behind the board below it before epoxying the lower board so I can mark where the joint will be.
2) I cut as close to my mark as I dare with my jigsaw.
3) I attach the board to the hull with enough space for my router fence to fit. I don't have the correct clamps, so I use either double sided tape or as in
this picture I stapled it on.IMG_0011.JPG
4) I made a little sanding stick the thickness of my router fence with 80 grit paper and spray on glue. I run this in the joint to make sure the router
will fit through the grove.IMG_0013.JPG
5) I slowly route the joint. The depth is set so I do not cut into the underlying plywood.IMG_0014.JPG
6) I have a small lip remaining on the board which I remove with a file.
7) Next I'll use my clear paper pattern I made to mark and cut the top of the board. Then plane and sand and file the top until it fits my lines on the hull
