New member buildng a Sweet 16

Post by Cnodnarb » Sat Sep 15, 2018 10:32 am

Good morning everyone! New member here in Chicago. I started building my Sweet 16 about a month ago and I'm looking for some helpful advice if anyone has the time and info. I'm getting worried Gail is going to block my calls!

So far the build has progressed smoothly and I'm loving it. All the frame members are cut and partially gusseted. I have a few questions best practices for notching the frames and attaching the keel.

Hope to hear from someone.

Oh, and if it's of interest, I built a CLC nor'easter sailing dory this last spring and own a 1975 Carver Monterey as well.

Welcome! Do you have a copy of the Boatbuilding with Plywood book from Glen-L? Its really helpful for questions like those.
