Which hull forms on the wood duck 14 are permanent?
Plans seem to indicate numbers 1 and 3, and these are the only forms that extend into the upper deck portion, and they have the angled side's for stitching the sheer panels...so I', guessing it's these??
Which deck forms are permanent..if any? (I think they all are temporary forms..but need to confirm).
On the hatch's...plans say to cut two hatch's on the WD14...but to cut the same size hatch on the front deck didn't seem correct, as to fit it on the deck, you'd have to locate the hatch into the area where the top deck has a serious curve in it, and I felt that removing this section for a hatch would have a "spring" effect, so I sized down the hatch included with the plans and kept it forward on the bow where it's flat...seemed to make more sense and look correct for that area of the boat. The plans did not have locating/alignment holes for the front hatch section on the deck template, so I winged it...resized and cut all the appropriate spacers, sil plate and such...any problem doing that? I can't imagine when it's all glassed and epoxied that this would compromise strength?
