building method - hull -

according to the table of offsets - you cut out the deck from " insulation foam - lay it upside down on some floor -

glue up the pieces - taking some epoxy mixture - fill it with 10% cotton flocks + 20% micro baloons - per weight -

then you cut out from the same foam station # 8 + 6 on each end - glue them on at the distance seen in the table of offsets -

the outside face you bewel so it fits with the lines on deck etc -

the # 4 + 2 are just building frames - you just need 1 half of each temporarily for using it when working there -

then you fashion the bulkhead frames out of 2 by 2" douglas fir - vertical grain - without any knots -

scarfing them together according to the # 0 + 1 dimensions - letting stick out the top beam for the bridge deck later -

glueing them on the deck at the stations - # 0 - 2 of them #1 - 2 of them with shorter deck beams -

then you glue on the keel x " douglas fir - same quality - from the # 8 to #8 station -

from # 8 station to the bow use sheet foam according to the offset table - lofting on the lines -

leave a few inches excess according to the bow detail -

glueing them on between deck and # 8 station -

then you glue on stringers at deck level - 18" up from the wl - at 12" - at 6" - at the wl

then fill in the empty spaces with more foam - about 2 - 3 lbs / f3 - leaving out the secktion for the cockpit entrance -

now take a piece of 1/8" ply - douglas fir A/B grade - horizontally - so it will bend easily - and cover the hull with it -

( if you have any problems getting the compond shape realized - wet it on the outside the day before - a little with a sponge )

puting on each butt - a 3" wide piece of ply wood - between the springers - taking out some foam first with the router -

glueing them in place with your mixture first - then nailing down the planking with anker fast nails or small sheet metal srews -

starting from the center going horizontal - then from the center going vertical - then diogonal - then the outsides -

when finished - cover the whole thing - twice - with 6 oz cloth + epoxy mixture - filling in first 10% micro baloons - per weight -
