Re: WR18 aft deck radius
Posted by Mike D on Nov 7, 2005
Well....yes, but not until about half way thru nailing the aft deck on. Fortunately I had a lucid moment when I put the foredeck on so didn't have any tape and garbage bags to remove.
Cut the forward hatch opening last night and checked the deck with the planing gauge. Must be pilot error but the foredeck doesn't match the gauge either. Like you suggest, I'll wait till I have all the stiffeners and lip in place before building the mold (per Shop Tips) for gluing up the hatch doublers.
Happy building, MD
