Starting build and have a few questions of PTPlan sheet 2 of 10, 2005 nick shade drawing for the Petrel.
1. Is there a video or photos of the SB and partial build? How about links to a few recommended instructions. I'm new to this and appreciate any help. I am working from and very appreciative for the build videos of the Petrel Sport, but it's SB is oriented horizontally along the 4" axis and the PTPlan is designed on a vertically oriented SB.
2.Is it necessary to taper the SB at both ends, from 4" height to about 3" , ie between the last frames with thru holes for the SB and next outboard frame? The sheet 2 shows a SB tapered from 4" to an unspecified dimension at the ends, where it contacts frames #3 and #15.
2. Is there a recommended finish for the interior of the skin? I will review the video of the Petrel Sport for this. I assume the interior surface of the strips need to be sealed from exposure to water.
