okwata 15 build

Post by cridgie down under » Wed May 26, 2010 11:33 pm

Hi matt today i starting plotting my ply ,and am now ready to start cutting .
Your plans "are an absolute delight to work with". I only have 1 query and i am hesitant to ask as i feel the answer to my question will probably be "oh why didn"t i think of that."

1. on the bulkhead drawings 1 to 5 there is a horizontal dotted line across each one,
a measurement is given up from the bottom ,what does this measurement and line relate to ?

Kind regards
Ray

That's an estimated waterline. It's for reference. If you wanted to set up your frames in a strongback fashion on a flat bench for building, then use some 1x2 timber cut to the same length and mount them to that line on all frames.
