Toolman,

Matt suggested that angle instead of puting on the cove and bead.So thats what I used to bring the edges together.At certain points the had to be hand plained to fit because of the curves but I think they turned out OK. Now the centre line is cut and it's on to the other side.ImageImage

To be clear: I said to leave that natural angle alone and fill the gap with epoxy since you'll round it off later. You could bevel for a little bit tighter fit. But if you're using epoxy-glue (epoxy with some filler to thicken it), you want that slight v-channel.

Sorry Matt you were right you did say 30 to 60 degree if I was using epoxy and filler but I'm glueing them and so for seems to be working out but I do have use the small hand plain for a better fit on the curves

What if you bead and cove and install the strips with the cove up it would make a nice little channel to hold your bead of glue in place while installing the next strip. Just a thought.

The idea of the angle was to save a little time and work.Most of the stripping I've got was free wood and it was thought this why might be easier. I alternate the angle cuts so they follow the curve over the moulds and so far things are coming toghter quite nicelyWith the cure there is also more area of gluing surface .Thanks for the the input Terry

Terry,

Looking great! Is the thin dark strip down the middle of the hull the same walnut you used as your starter strip?

It's been a long hall but the deck is finally together ,now the sanding starts to get ready for the glassing.The strip build sure is a challenge but I've thourghly enjoyed it this far but there is still a long way to go.ImageImage
