Beav,
If you look at the plans the hull stringers do not get beveled, the 15 deg angle comes down to the inside of the sheer stringer. You will find the the 68mm x 19mm gets the 15 deg chamfer and fits in between the frames along the hull. The cabin sides are fitted to the outside and come down on top of the sheer stringer. There is a 20mm capping strip of 9mm ply along the outside on top of the sheer stringer, It is all in the plans, it also shows it in cross section. Clear as mud.

Beav, I haven't written much in the last year (years) but if you look at the first page of Boothy's Barge you'll see the cut John is talking about.

Thanks to all who have posted. This forum has helped me immensely.

Boothy, I had a good idea what you were telling me and now I'm sure about it and thanks. I am planning to setup the assembly fixture this week end and I welcome all the help I can get. :P :P

My first fillets. I didn't notice my radio playing in the background with copyrighted music so I'll have to post another video when I do more filleting. :oops:

I find using a piping bag (used for frostong cakes) much easier for doing fillets, I buy mine on ebay, just get the largest plastic ones you can find and cut a hole in the end.
One of my initial problems with my mixing of epoxy was I wasn't mixing it thick enough and would find that the fillet had slumped.
Mixing was a science at first with measuring cups and scales, now when thickening the mix you get to know how much to add by eye.

John,
I had heard an icing bag would work every well and I am going to try that. I am going to make a spreader that will make fillets and cleans up the sides as well. Not all of my ideas work but the ones that do save loads of time. :P
Today I faired most of the forward frames to the stringers. I have a # 8 (I think) hand plane I used to fair the frames and it worked every well. I started using these hand tools a couple years ago and struggled until I learned how to sharpen them. If they are scary sharp the work is Easy!!
I don't know what very many of you look like except for James and Chris so I guess I'll say hello.

I was told many many times but......... I'm a little hard headed. When you leave screws where you have to plane, this tool is your friend !!!!!! :evil:

Every wood worker should have one of these in their tool box!!

The power planer is nice for taking off the bulk but this hand plane will make the surface fair and true.
