  1. That is true Matti , good idea about the iron angles !!! when i bought my plywood i took the strone one i dont know the name in english but they used to make doors from this plywood its a bit expensive but it worth the money btw i think it cams also from finland Best Regards Michael.
  2. The jig i made it without plans , You just need to take make a straight line on the base and then connect the supports (90 degrees supports) between the bulkheads, you can use the keel as a guid when you connecting the supports the only thing that you need to worry about its to have a straight plywood for the base it will help you later when you will measure the distance between the bulkheads to the base for making sure that all the bulkhead are on the same level ! , and also you must be careful about the supports to make them exact 90 degrees for both sides it will help you to check the level of the bulkheads by measuring from the top of the bulkhead to the base in both sides Be carful when you making the jig and take your time , its the must important process for the all body of your ship !!! Best regards, Michael.

  9. hello i think you should make a jig as the curve of the bow then after soaking the plank use hair dryer and carefully - slowly slowly make the curve against the jig best regards , Michael.
