Thanks for the quick response, after reading thru the forum; I am thinking I should try raising (toward the keel) the upper panels at the bow a bit. This will bring them together, Still need to make sure panels are flush along the sides. If the upper panels do not line up with the forms exactly, does that affect the future deck etc. build?

I fussed with them a bit more and they came together much better. Dropped the transom end a bit, raised the bow end. Looks like I can get down to a 1" gap which is great. Thanks for the support. Just wasn't sure what the gap should be after earlier reading about the "rounded" bow!

As designed, theoretically, the upper panels are 1/4" away from the molds. If you build from a kit, we usually offset that sheer edges to have a safety margin greater than 1/4". If you cut your own deck, always check against the assembled hull.

Had to add two 1" splices to upper panels at bow to close the gap. Started taping this morning. Tough to wet out that biax but got it. Time for my nap!

She looks good right now. Love the C17 was all set to build one until I broke my ankle and had to have knee surgery. Are you building it to spec or with a center console.

Basically building to spec but have been looking at open bow with a windshield door to bow. Rather than try to draw it out, i will just wait until I roll it and then lay it out in cardboard. Has anyone tried this? There may not be enough room......

We are in the Pacific Northwest and any kind of cabin is really nice for those less forgiving days. I also need to include a Loo for my first mate. I am fine with an 18" piece of PVC pipe.

BTW good luck with the knee, I have a total knee replacement, best thing I ever did. My soapbox is..... get your knee muscles as strong as possible before surgery, and then be religious after PT about riding a bike. Don't let that joint get rusty!

Today's progress....

At 66 I go to the gym 3 times a week to try to stay healthy. My folks are long lived, mom and dad both lived into there 90's and grandma was 103. I look forward to following your build and what changes you make if any for your weather in Washington. That is what is great about these boats minor but signicant changes can mean a lot to the owner.

North half is glassed; wife mixed, I spread and neighbor fine tuned and picked up thin spots. Any less than three would be a big job.
