Is this what you call 'fairing'?

Am i supposed to notch the #1 & 2 frames for the bottom batten? The plans don't show it. However HZCHEVY seems to have done so here: download/file.php?id=2773&mode=view

See the yellow circles to see what i mean.

:D Never built that hull,but on the Bo-jest ,I cut into the frames for the bottom battons didn't cut too far down so battons stuck up a little above frames and cut limber hole on sides of frame slots .Before gluing and screwing down battons ,might I suggest cutting a kerf (slot ) on forward end of batton-would make bending down easier.

:D Ply gets fastened to battons,shears and chines-not to frames so don't want frames to stick up further than battons

It's coming along nicely chubs. You'll need a boat with all that rain you guys have had.

Thanks chug, I plan on fairing it all flat. I have a hell of a belt sander that will make short work of it.

Hz you're right! Crazy rain here.

Wow the glue didn't want to let go of the screws, all 4 broke:

:D If you're going to remove screws after gluing-why not just clamp and glue.I countersunk my screws a little bit so as to leave in frames.that way it wouldn't interfear with fairing. also didn't put battons in until after chines and shears were installed and faired I suppose on your hull ,the battons help hold things together.

I tend to agree with chugalug on this one. Just leave the screws in place. I countersunk my screws in for added security. They didn't hinder my fairing at all.

Good points. Well it's academic since the heads snapped off the screws when I tried to remove them:

So i'm wondering now, is there any trick to installing the curvey pieces, where the bottom of the boat meets the side? I guess i'll do them next?
