I've cut out the panels for Nick's free S&G. years ago I build a Hybrid S&G hull and strip deck. So I'm going to build two more, a slightly larger one for me (deck height only) for better foot room. and leg room, and one for my daughter. I've got the panels cut, and they look pretty good to my eye.
At this point have one comment and one question.
Comment: I made use of Nick's PDF and had it printed then aligned everything, taped around the edges, and then cut out the paper template. I then taped this down every ft or so, and traced them down to the wood. The lines from the print out are fairer than the lines from plotting the offsets provided. So far I recommend going with printing the file rather than plotting the offsets directly to the wood.
As for my question, the printed plans come with a normal Fwd/aft plot of kayak, where each 'station' is plotted over top of each other and you see the kayak from the front/back. I intend to use these as the stations for holding my kayak to shape while stitching it up. The qtn is, are these to the inside of the kayak, or the outside? I believe they are for the inside, but would appreciate confirmation.
Rob, did you get the VJ re-built finished?
