Re: Strip: Hybrid Ply-Stripper Canoe

: Bill, I don't have an email address, mine is t1haines@sympatico.ca

: had problems with a batch of ribs but I think I now have enough for
: the boat. The wood was too dry and the strips were cracking, so
: I wet them down. They bent fine but after they had dried on the
: form overnight they did not spring back at all, unlike the
: previous batches which had the expected 10% springback for 3
: laminations. So I had to do another batch. Hopefully I will be
: able to start building now ...

Downside of trying something new, it doesn't always work as planned :)

But...if you stick to it, you can usually figure out what's going wrong and make it work.

Happens to me all the time, you get used to it after awile. I suppose I could just build boats as designed, but what fun would that be?
