Since I've just started the LB22, I sure haven't forgotten about the 26. It makes my project feel more exciting somehow. The 26 is way over my head now, but if I complete the 22....Maybe? Beautiful looking to me. BTW, thanks Jacques for your patience with me so far with the 22. I continue to be amaz...

Yes, that's as I thought but I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something. It's not so clear in the building notes. I also preferr to use scrap as opposed to buying excess meranti. Seems easier as well. And am I correct to use a fiberglass butt block (both sides) to join up the frame pieces? Gonna...

Thanks for the reply Jacques. I have read the tutorial, but my questions are more specific to the LB22. Perhaps it's best if I deal with one at a time, since understanding one will probably lead to understanding of the others. I understand that stations are transverse sections of the hull, and that ...

I'm off for 10 days, no internet, so no rush to respond. I'll check in around Aug. 4th.

Help on cutting stations/frames for LB22

Heh Jacques, I'm afraid I need a little more guidance on this station/frame thing. Earlier you explained the transom/clamping boards so well even I got it, so there's hope. I have cut out the transom and one inside stringer, which is the first sawdust made and was duly celebrated. Now as I look at t...

Thanks Jeremy, so would I! I figure this is gonna take me a long time, especially since I barely know what I'm doing. Still, one step at a time and, yeah, I'll take pics as I go along. Makes it more fun.

Ah yes, it becomes clear to me. Of course, use the transom as reference and cut the clamping boards to fit, so it's like one strong piece to support the weight and thrust of the motor. Thanks so much, I wanted this to be more clear in my head. I just got through cutting the strongbacks (2' by 8's) f...

Ok I think I'm on track. The board I referred on the camber question is the clamping board (two). The bottom looks like a camber to me in the D234/5 layout, but if you say so, I'll just cut it straight. It seems like the clamping boards should reach down to the hull and be epoxy/taped there.
