Hi - this is my first post - been lurking for a couple of weeks now. I'm building a Chesapeake 16 and am most of the way through the end pours. After reading several other posts, I'm almost ashamed to admit that I made the pours larger than the plans call for. I did fill them with small pieces of wood in addition to the epoxy, so they are not as heavy as they could have been.....but it's done.
My question is about the top of the end pours where the deck attaches to them. The book discusses pouring to the top of the sheer clamps and using a file to round them off. Epoxy is hard and I was thinking about cutting a piece of wood to fit the top of the endpour and rounding that off instead. Any comments?
Also, I am assuming that the areas from the pointy ends to the end of the end pours should have the same arcs as the decks. Is this true?
Excellent forum - lots of good advice here - thanks in advance for any comments/suggestions.
