If the keel is laminated with epoxy...why would you need screws from the bottom?

To expand the question...screws between keel and sheer clam laminations (#8 @ 6"?), and then more screws through the hull layers and the laminations (#8 @ 3"?)...that's a lot of screws, why?

Answered as if I was the designer...If there is a little weakness in the woodgrain in one layer or another, the screws hold things together and prevent cracks from opening. If there is a little distraction while measuring epoxy components, the screws hold things together. Differential expansion between solid lumber and plywood may lead to eventual joint failure (not sure I agree with that one), the screws hold things together. Building with what you've got, suspect as it may be, screws hold things together. Something dynamic happens when the bottom of the water and the top of the water get too close together while the boat is cruising in the middle, screws hold things together.

I not putting in that many screws, but its on me not the designer.

Well, if I do place screws in it, I'll do it after the flip

Well, here is the proposed fix for the chine logs...havent glued them on yet, I'll set them in tomorrow, but it should allow for the angle fix once shaved down properly.

Chine fairing should work out nicely with the added lamination. Looking good sir,

It seems almost everyone has to do this. I did it myself and have seen it done across multiple different designs. Just part of the process. It's looking good, you're getting it.
