I am building a 14 foot rowing dory. The plans call for Sheer stringers of 3/4 by 2 inches running the complete length of the boat. I have 16 foot clear quater-sawed douglas fir I am using for these stringers. The question I have is will I be able to steam bend them to fit in a single piece? The half widths for the plans vary from 10.5 inches at the transom, to 24 inches mid-ship to 1 inch at the stem.
