Got the chines glued down.
2.5"x1.25" triangles
Bow pieces are 5ft long tapered for the front 4ft 4in leaving 8in full size to mate with the full size angles all the way to the transom.
Kerffed every 2 inches which made them pretty flexible, but not flexible enough to hold in place with duct tape so I still had to screw it down every little bit.

Overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out so far. I will need to fill the kerfs and butt joints and blend in all the irregularities, but it already looks pretty close.

How did you end up cutting the taper on the chines (as you approached the bow)?
They look great and appreciate all the build photos.
Sanding is cathartic...

First off, your daughters(is there an apostrophe plural and possessive?) boats are amazing. My dream is for Landon to enjoy his as much as I know they are and have theirs.

I used a straight edge and drew a line on the cut face.
Then laid it down cut face up and free handed it through the table saw.

I thought about trying to rig up some sort of jig, but couldn't think of a quick easy way, and perfection doesn't matter too much, I'll be filling, sanding, glassing, filling and sanding anyways to make it look good, so an 1/8" give or take off the line was close enough imo. (I think I stayed within less than 1/8" of my line freehanding)

My hick-lish roots and bad edumacation say we should go with daughtereses.

My pedantic half (which is frequently beaten up by my hick-lish half) says "the proper way to write a plural possessive where the last letter is an 's', is with a trailing apostrophe". After the pedantic half escaped from the locker the hick-lish half shoved him in, we found the following written on post-its all over the locker interior

Code: Select all

daughters'
daughters'

Hope that helps.
