Re: butt block assembly
Nice transom shape! And having just launched a boat with buttblocks, I didn't notice that the lines were not fair, because as stated above, they were in the right place. One thing I have learned, put a fillet of epoxy around the edge of the block, covers the end grain, easier to clean with a hose and you dont get dirt and water collecting there.
