Hello
 - and yet another one, I have just laid the ' keel ' and am fixing the frames, I will use all the posts here, plus the build in the Sept. 2006 Model Boats. I don't think I have ever seen so much info. Hopefully they should steer me away from all the Billing's pitfalls (just finished a Billings Bluenose for my wife - Decorative static)
Enjoying getting back to construction, using a Proops brass cubes to keep my frames in line, and upright - so far so good.
Last boat before the Bluenose was a Dave Metcalf Bulldog, I like different challenges, and before that was a Fleetscale Missouri,
love building, not to worried about sailing!!

Just a thought, when gluing the compound curved surfaces, I used masking tape to position and hold the ply in position, no pins, no clamps, no elastic, seems to have worked, and its quick and stress free.
