Enclosed some new fotos for the picboard from 28.08.04, Day 15 in the building process.
Frames and stringers finshed and ready for planking. Sideplanking
scarfed and sanded ready for gluing on. Our experience with the hard to
bend Sapelli Mahaghoni AW 100 Typ 10mm was to saw in the bowsection
inside every inch a 1,5mm fine cut, half the thickness of the planking and
bring it up to the frames for one night, wetting the outside surface for
easier bending. Day after epoxing on with screws to frames which come off
later. Next time will do planking with 2 layers of 5mm in Bowsection for easier bending and working for two. We hope to keep surface good looking for clear epoxi varnish.
All the best from TIROL-AUSTRIA
