Re: Panga 20 Build

How am I supposed to take out the waves in-between frames A B C where the rub rails are supposed to go. Beyond that it's OK. If I don't pull the side panels in at Frames A and B, there are no waves, but there is a 3" gap between the side panels and the Frames.

Re: Panga 20 Build

I got one side stitched up. I'll have the other side done tomorrow. Then I'll probably adjust and readjust for a few good days to get it lined up the best I can before placing tabs.

Re: Panga 20 Build

Thanks. I might take the next few days and clean up some of the saw dust while I wait for the rest of my materials. It's starting to pile up.

Re: Panga 20 Build

I cut the bow mold so I could stitch the bottom panels up. They lined up perfectly. Should be able to get the side panels on this weekend.

Re: Panga 20 Build

I printed my plans on mylar, so I don't think it was shrinkage. It was probably that batten size or an error on my part. I guess I won't really know if I should keep them tight or leave a larger gap until I put the side panels on. I went ahead and ordered the rest of my fiberglass and epoxy today. H...

Re: Panga 20 Build

The bottom panels line up perfect with each other. They just don't match the bow mold. I'm thinking the error was caused by me using the pattern that I cut the bow mold from. I did not use a pattern on the bottom panels. I used a batten to draw the curves. I suspect the differences between the curve...

Re: Panga 20 Build

Looks a little short. Is it okay if I trim the bow mold so I can finish stitching up the bottom panels?

Re: Panga 20 Build

I feel like this thing is about to explode. No way I could have bent this plywood without kerfing. As you can see Frame A is giving me some trouble. If I leave it as it is for a few days, will it be easier to bend the last little bit? Station B through the Transom is good.

Re: Panga 20 Build

Thanks, I understand now. I'll just wait. It's a little cold anyway and it's going to get much colder Monday and Tuesday. I still have plenty to do. I think I'm going to keep the bottom panels to make them easier to bend. Also need to clean my garage. There's about an inch of saw dust covering the e...
