Got some time to work on the 15 5 today. I am going to show some pics of the layout just for the new guys.
First layed out the twelve inch lines on the ply
Image

then measure of the points from Matts Plans I drove finishing nail in at the intersecting points and then used a piece of molding to follow the curve, clamping them to the nail
Image

Image

the last pic is after the lines are scribed on the ply

Image

Broke out the ole jig saw and started cutting ,got sides and bottom cut and sanded smooth, stations cut out, I am ready to start splicing the
panels,will try to do that and a little stitching tomorrow
Ron
PS I know this is cheap laun but it sure has some pretty grain to

From the bottom splice looks like it's the sweet spot. But test it before permanently attaching to be sure.

Everyone needs to know what's going on here:

I only provided Ron the drawings for the lower hull. He's installing the deck by hand and by eye. And doing a mighty fine job of it!

That boy has got some skills! 8) 8)

Thanks for the thumbs up.
I went and took the measurements I cut off 2 1/2 inches in height on the nose and tapered that back to nothing at 52 inches from the nose.
that gives about a 9 inch height on bow and stern, bye not peaking the front deck I lost a little over an inch in height and bringing the deck to a point gives me 3 3/4 inches of sloop from the cockpit to the nose that should be plenty to shed water from a wave, and I am hoping the lower profile and being balanced from front to back on the decks will cut weather cocking to a minimum, and help some more bucking head winds.
We will see
Ron
Ps I think the asymetrical and the decks are goig to give this yak a lot of eye apeal
