I'm just starting building a Sassafras 12 kit and I'm strugging with joining the strakes at the scarf joint. The first one I did, I overlapped slightly too much, and sanding it smooth put me through the veneer on the plywood. So I will either need to redo that strake, or paint the boat.
The second one I did is better, but far from 'good' in my mind.
I guess I just don't have a good feel for how much overlap is 'right' on the scraft joint, and how to get the right amount of glue in to be a strong bond, but not so much glue that it deforms the wood.
Hope that makes sense. If anybody has advice on how to glue those scraft joints consistently I would gladly take it. Thank you!
