Scrib­ing chine panelS

Practical Boat Owner - - Practical -

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!
