Re: TJ's V10

Thanks! I had been considering that but apparently some folks have had issues with the residue from the tape. Did you clean the surface with something after removing it? I'm fond of the idea for a few reasons otherwise.

Re: TJ's V10

Spent the day fine tuning the hull and frames. The instructions say you're supposed to put the frames and sides together and then lay the pieces for the bottom on that and trace the outline. Because the bow bends in about sixteen dimensions, I found this beyond my talents so I just cut the pieces ac...

Re: TJ's V10

Oh, yeah, been through it many times and am grateful for the pictures. I mistakenly gave gk108 credit for your bow solution...it was you who did the screws. But is that the one that sproinged open when you undid the ties? I'm not remembering which one of you guys came up with the frankenbolt, althou...

Re: TJ's V10

Yikes!! I'm assuming that's what happened to you? It has occurred to me that I might put two or three strategically placed pieces of glass tape on the stem and turn of the bilge in the center, after goop but before pulling the bolt and ties, to reduce the possibility of this happening. Your picture ...

Re: TJ's V10

So here's my bow solution. Frankenboat. It's pretty ugly for now and needs a bit of tweaking but brute force was what was required. I think someone else on the forum did this, which is where I got the idea.

Re: TJ's V10

Thanks, guys. While sorting out the bow I'm contemplating another problem. I made the butt blocks 10" wide, which I thought I saw somewhere. Then Cracker Larry said they should only be 6". I don't think the dimensions are in the plans but I could have missed them. Anyway, I've now got a flat spot in...

Re: taping frames on the V10

Thanks, sds!
I had not heard back and had determined that the safest bet was to tape the frames.
I'm not decided on the breasthook/knees issue, so I was just asking to see if there really is an option.

Re: TJ's new V10
