[bolger] Re: Windsprint Hull Fairness
- I built and currently sail a Windsprint. I used 1/2" plywood on the bottom
and I think it makes for a sturdier boat. I butted the plywood and then
scribed it. I used an electric planer to fair the edges. Not sure about
getting everything centered. My center lines matched up and the hull looked
straight to me. I added decking fore, aft and sides. I'm constantly messing
with the rig. I also think staring at the boat is good work!

I know I can shim out the unfair spot, I need a way to check the hull
for square. I'm not sure just lining up the marked centerlines (going
to go back and check that all these are REALLY centered anyway) and
pulling a string along them to line everything up will really make
everything square and true. Help?
