Scribing chine panelS
The chine panels are supplied well oversized, and need to be scribed to fit. This we did by holding the panels to the boat with spring clamps while drawing round them, before cutting them to a slightly oversized shape.
The instructions are quite vague about how to achieve a good taper between the chine panels and the curved hull sections forward, and we settled on a long taper running to the third frame.
The chine stringer panels temporarily clamped for marking...
...and before trimming back to reduce the amount of planing!
