Deck Templates

The deck templates will help cutting the "real" thing more precise.

Starboard Templates

These 2 pieces will fit the starboard side. The edges are slightly sanded so we will not get slivers when handling them.

1/4 inch ply...

Just a sheet of very cheap 1/4 inch ply should do. After drawing up how the sections are going to fit on a 4 by 8 I try to align them accordingly. I will need 2 sheets of the "real" top secret material.

Tracing Outline

We traced the outline about 1/4 inch away from the hull. This will allow me to sand the edge down to perfection.

David at Work

Some serious Saturday help was required with these large pieces. David and his dad Bob were a great help!
