First time build. Huntung scull boat

Post by JohnBo »


I am in process of my first ever build of any magnitude. I am truly amazed at the craftsman ship I see on this site. Wow!

I do have a question on the framing fastening of my scull. The fastening schedule doesn't mention fastening the keel and bottom battens to the cross frames. Any ideas if this an over site or is there a boat building reason not to fasten them but let them float? Thanks and if I should ask in another place where?

The Fastening Schedule lists Cross Frames to Keel, battens & Chine, 1-1/4" screws, 1 each joint.
