Thanks, Daniel! I’m enjoying the process.

A little bit of both on the bow. I drew all of the parts in Fusion 360, which is 3D modeling software. From here I creat the cnc programs to cut parts. It’s more user friendly for me. Rather than set up and do full size layouts on sheets to cut by hand, this process allows me to work on things a little at a time as free time allows.

I read the thread about flared bows, and reversed the camber on station 1 and the bow mold. Jacque offered to take a look at my model, which he did, and have some advice on how to make the hull panels work. Thread is here. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25003

I haven’t dug into his advice yet; I’ve been focused on stringers and transom, but plan on laying out the bottom panels this week, making my way toward the side panels, which will be affected by the reverse camber.

Jacque also suggested kerfing the hull panels to allow them to bend easier, which I will. I’m going to squeeze as much flare as I can!

:lol: I wouldn’t say I know what I’m doing, but I am trying to use the tools I have.

I’m excited for sure. Definitely the most complex single product project I’ve ever undertaken!

That level is important. It's been one of my best friends during my build :D Everything looks nice and solid. Fun times. I look forward to watching the rest of your build.

Thanks, Gents!

Question for you, Eric. Standing here, looking at the keel at about eye level, I’m wondering how I’m going to be able to effectively sand and paint the bottom of this boat. :doh:

Assuming you faced similar challenges on your C21. What do you to manage sanding over your head? Just work off a ladder or something more creative?
