I have the CnC kit.

Would I need to run glass tape on both sides of the puzzle joint, before assembling? Found the puzzle joint info, but did not see if I tape first or during the the taping of the hull.

Thanks, Bob.
As I understood one of the purposes of the puzzle joint is not to have tape or blocks, so no I don't think you have to tape, but I could be wrong better wait for more answers.

Edit: ignore me, Jacques already answered on previous page.

Capt UB,

If you tape the the puzzle joints before you plank the hull then you will end up with flat spots in the hull which will result in a lot of fairing in order to get the curve of the hull back. If laminated correctly, the plywood would break before that puzzle joint would fail.

Reid is correct plus, you don't need the tape.
There will be enough fiberglass covering that seam later.

I think I answered that same question in another thread earlier today.

Thank you, Bob.

FS14 Aft deck CnC hatch cutout

Going to fill in the gap and brace under the aft hatch (cutout), I have two very nice hatches for that area. Learning as we go! Next build I will ask for a layout of the CnC cutout design. I do like this CnC pre-cut ply. And the marine plywood is beautiful looking wood.... My dog likes it, found her sleeping on it....!

FS14 removing center bench, lowering foredeck, extending frames to the gunwales, adding frames for a coaming

The center bench frames (bulkheads), cut down to 3" around, extending to top of gunwale.

The foredeck lowered to the same height or the aft deck, don't know if that is possible, still read other threads and posts.... Read it was, I think!

Adding frames just to the side of the hull, from the cockpit sole to the coaming, same as the other frames from aft deck and foredeck.
