Thanks Tim, I did some further reading on the clamping board, and I will opt for the hardwood clamping board, even though all plywood transoms can be used. Though from what I have read in the forums it must be glassed with care to eliminate any chances of cracking. I will also double check the clamp...

Hi Tim, It is only a dry fit at the moment, yes the stringers will need the notches cut. I am planning to do this on the weekend after they have been glued. I learnt from the canoe it is much easier to align panels if screws are used. The screws can be removed before the resin has fully hardened. I ...

Well, I ended up shifting house, but now there is enough room to build it inside a dry workshop. All the wood required to finish the jig and the plywood for each of the frames including the transom has been purchased. But, I still need to buy the hardwood for the engine bracket. I still need to deci...

Back again! Progress has been a little slow, I may have to shift house but will see how I go! The supplier of the plywood and timber I am using is "Morgan Timber & Plywood" in Bibra Lake ( 9494 1466 ). They have Austral Hoop Pine Marine Grade Plywood at a good price. I like the colour and it is easy...

Very nice model Mark, it is definitely a great motivation having a model to see the project to completion. The droopy bow baffled me when I was creating the model of the CX19. I thought it was due to the thickness of the balsa when creating the bow. So I created the full size bow mold from the full ...

I am also still completing my canoe as a practice boat and have begun to fai...
