Hey Eric the question always bothered me also. When I asked many years ago I got the answer that the water line was the break point, but you could extend the 3 layers all the way if wanted.

Thanks Buddy! I think that's the plan. :wink:
I got the second layer of tape down just now. This time 12 ounces was perfect.

Last one, You can see I went ahead and wet out the foam with left over epoxy. I figure it would fill in some of the small holes.

Where does the bow start? :help:
Maybe the bow starts where it starts to bow. 8)

Your boat is really coming along.

About the clamping board: it is designed for a splash well but can be built that way for a bracket too.
As long as the bracket bolts are located well below the edge of the clamping board. In other words, the bolts must all go through the clamping board.
There are several options:
- many builders have made the whole transom from the same thickness than the clamping board. It does not add much strength but the fiberglass job is easier, not step to go over, no step in the motorwell longitudinals.
- many builders plan to use a larger outboard than what I specify and add a layer of ply to the transom, inside.

I was able to get fillets on the chines and part of the bow/keel intersection today.
The plan is to get epoxy on the chines tomorrow. It may have to wait though I need to go visit with my Dad.

One thing I like about building a boat is there is no time restrictions like a job has. No time lines, no must get this finished and gives time for life's little things that when missed add up to big things.

Eric have a good visit with your Dad. :)
