Re: cracked scarfe joint

Posted by Al on Mar 11, 2007

hi Alan what happened is the panel slid off the bench and landed on the stern end of the bottom panel and where the scarf joint begins ie where it starts to taper down to the feather edge the inside core had cracked but no sign of delamination from the outside (face) veneers in fact i could bend it significantly and no problem with the okoume. This is my first attempt at building and skills are rudimentary at best but i love the process and in the future i'll have a 17lt kayak that i built yee hah. Sorry about the slow response i live in South Australia,cheers Al
