Cutting that rascally rabbet


Recommended Posts

I am starting the work on the Emma C. Berry and want to be sure i am handling the rabbet the right way.  Based on the plans, it appears that what I need to do is cut the rabbet in between the bearding line and the rabbet line - is that the correct approach?

Appreciate any recommendations - this is my first POF so not quite clear the best way to handle.

Yes, you have it correct. You are making an area into which the end of the planks sit. The rabbet, depending on the hull's shape in any given area, will change shape along its length.
