HC12 Questions for Jacques

Post by Jeff » Wed Apr 08, 2020 3:14 pm

This question just arrived via email: "The Upper panel and chine panel labelled wrong ( the chine is on the bottom of the hull ). Also the bow curve on what you have labelled as the chine panel is backwards. To have a recurve bow the long end of the bow curve has to be on the inside ( hull side ) of the panel. Just cut the pieces out of page two with scissors and see if you can get them to fit together flat for a recurved bow." Jeff

Additional question arrived from same customer: "Looking at your construction pics it stir looks like the upper panel is attached to the bottom rather than the chine panel. If however the chine panel is attached to the bottom first then the bow curve on the upper panel is backwards as the long side of the curve has to be on the inside curve of the upper panel" Jeff

Edited:
The plans are correct, nothing is mislabeled but what may confuse some builders is the assembly sequence and the unusual sheer.
See this sentence in the building notes:
Beware, because of the reverse curvature of the bow, the longest side goes along the chine!

If somebody tries to assemble it any other way, it will not work.

One more point: if you want to make a model or play with the dimensions, use the panel dimensions. All dimensions are correct.
Do not print the nesting drawing to make a paper model. Use the panels drawing, that one is correct.
The nesting drawing is correct but can not be used for a model or for CNC.
