2199RE: [AtkinBoats] River Belle
- Dec 16, 2008Hi Eugene.
Stitch and Glue was the original intention, but now I have decided to use an
ordinary chine log for the length of the vessel, and a small hog for the
joint of the panels of the tunnel just above the propeller to the transom.
There is a section where the negative deadrise turns through flat to
positive, where I think there may be some "stitches" required but that's all
at present. The whole hull will be epoxy filleted and fibre glassed, so the
result should be pretty strong..
I have changed Mr William's flat sided design above the chine to a curve to
allow it to be clinker (Lapstrake) built with 12 mm plywood "planks" each
about 200mm wide. This approach adds a fair bit of strength, does away with
the need for most of the sawn frames or bulkheads and adds a bit of extra
beam as a bonus without changing the underwater profile.
This is about "Plan F or G" at least, and I dare say that there are many
more changes of plan to come! And that's only this week.....
