Re: planing radius on dou

Bret and Gary,

I haven't built a double - but why would that lack of experience stop me?

If you imagine all the beams and bulkheads installed in the hull, would they cause the deck to flow from one radius through another? The foredeck especially, flows from almost flat at the prow to something tortured at the coaming.

Along the way it'll gradually change radius.

Or is this just too obvious?

All the best to you both!
