Re: [AtkinBoats] Book Arrived
- Is it the steamed frames that scare you, or do you want to use plywood
planking? Steaming frames isn't any big deal. Though I haven't yet tried it
myself, the people I know who've steam bent frames say that rather than
being scary, it's fun! <g> In a pinch, you could laminate the frames. Both
Island Princess and Little Maid of Kent have curves in the sections, in the
bottom and in the topsides, that'd make planking with plywood sheets
impractical. They're both too large for trailering, so why do you want to
