On the FS 19 a bow frame is attached to Frame A to provide support to the hull & bow so that it won’t droop when stitching together the hull. Once the hull was flipped and all the frames were removed, the bow was already shaped. The sheer line can be trimmed after flipping to whatever style is desired and that can accentuate a droopy bow or deemphasize a droop in the bow. On the FS 19 that I built the bow is not droopy at all. In fact the bow is so high that fitting the fore deck and installing the lifting cleat took some modification to make everything fit right and mate the threaded rod with the bow eye underneath.

So we layered the tape for the inside just need to cover the hull with the last layer of fiberglass but in the mean time also did some dry fitting of the frames below the floor and also the rod holders and console now we can get a feel of how everything is going to layout

I seem to recall a builder that made those rod holder frames and they broke, but I can't recall the boat.

If they are structural; best to glass em.

Not sure, maybe one of the more experienced guys can remember the boat or tell me I'm full of it.

I like the vertical rod holders when I'm fishing and the horizontals when not. I made the verticals with pvc vac lines.

They will be glassed just test fitting thing before the final glass work and they are made to the specs on the plan they should be fine they are pretty solid no as the template

I’ve been off for a few days but I see you’re making amazing progress! You really do excellent and fast work !
I wish you were my next-door neighbor !!!!
Looks beautiful. Love the rod holders. Was thinking of something like that . Of course mine will have to be a shorter version because I have the two benches one On each side and the forward cabin. Where we go off Sandy Hook, NJ ( shortest way to ocean from PA) I like to have the cabin to get out of the weather. I was actually thinking of attempting to make the helm station inside the cabin however then I would not be able to stand up at the helm if I wanted to So I guess I’m going to build it exactly as designed on the inside.

Fallguy is right. The boat was PangaRons PG25.

The side frames are primarily there to stiffen the sides. If you cut into them halfway they lose 7/8 of their stiffness at those points. If you fall off a wave wrong there is the chance that cut could focus the bending force on the sides and they will hinge around that point. The C17 is a smaller boat than the PG25 and there is the overlapping side panels giving stiffness.

I would at least run it by the designer but if it were mine I'd look at alternative designs, like doubling or tripling the thickness around the cuts, and making the cuts no deeper than required to hold the rods. If possible I'd drill holes instead. More work to put the rod in but more secure.

We are planning to thicken up the rod holders and also glass them over i've been work on the console fitting the gas tank hoses and cutting cleats for the floor
