Step 13: Ok, Let's Review. OR - Boat 2...What I learned.
Of course the second time around it's much easier. And faster.
Note here I SOAKED the wood in water. (A tarp held by scrap wood.) for a while until I was ready to begin. Helps a lot!
We both pulled the sides over the ribs together and got a very nice bend to the wood. In the photos below you can see how I outlined the bottom on the extra 1/4" ply.
Also, this boat is the "smaller" design from Hannu's plans.
Note I added the 1" trim to the back of the sides to screw the transom to. Much easier.
In this boat, I used all 1" screws and left them all in. In Boat #1 I took the screws out and fiberglassed over them. Here I left the screws in and fiberglassed over the heads. The advantage is that I didn't have to make 2 passes witht he fiberglass, just went over it all at once.
