Appreciate any help with my concerns below concerning build of Petrel. Thanks Chris
1. I’m ready to assemble the bow and stern endforms. After assembly, the lower edges of the endforms will project outside the envelope of the frame. Do the edges need to be beveled before the bow frames 1,2 and 3 are mounted?
2. Any chance there’s a photo of this assembly?
My frames are made from ¾ inch particle board. The note on sheet 2 of the construction plan says “cut the thickness of the bow endform out of the middle of frames 1,2 and 3. Removal will cause the edge of the endforms to extend outside envelope of the frames. The figure of the assembly on sheet 2, shows the frames extending to the edge of the endform after attachment, but if I remove a ¾” center section, the lower edge of a cut frame will be above the edge of the endform.
3. This would cut each frame into two pieces. What method has been used to attach each frame half to an end form?
