The stringers needed a fair bit of fettling to achieve the correct shape. I did spend a fair few hours on these. Hand plane in the main, although the belt sander did assist getting excess material off quickly.
There was a good tension in the stringers towards the bow that needed some encouragement.
Then to the sides, I decided not to join them together off the boat with the butt joints but do them as each panel went on. I did not really have the space to lay them out off the boat, but also made sense to get them fitted correctly on the boat and add the panels. Worked well.
There is a lot of epoxy needed, I over applied it to the frames and stringers then used the excess to create small fillets on the inner side. It was was possible to achieve a smooth finish with some acetone but will still need some sanding.
Never thought I could use so many clamps! Also used lots of 3cm stainless screws (all A4 incase they don’t come out) to hold down panels on frames. I removed all of them after the epoxy has gone off.
