    Twins!! very little spring back.. but I'll keep them on the form unless working on the bevel. what seems to be 40 50 degrees but translates to about 30 deg inward from the vertical of the form.

    Thanks Chris! I was mildly surprised with the Cherry, just soaking it a few hours made it rather flexible without Steam and after drying it retained much of the bend

    Now it's time to glue up the outer stems.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Think I'll make up the new in-rails, the outer stems can wait until I'm able to work on the boat outdoors again.

    Are you not going to laminate them over the inner stems on that former? Before you bevel the beardings?

    I think not, as it may change a bit depending on the plank ends, but I've nearly 2 months to play at it.

    Well I've wasted basically 4 strips of the Cherry because they had to come off to get me the 5/8" needed between the bevels. Eh.... Spoke shave & LA block Plane make it almost fun. But the carpal tunnel pain limits me to an hour or so, every day or so.

    After hours and hours of figuring, planning, guessing, cutting test blocks, cutting more test blocks, more planning and guessing, I cut the bevel on the band saw as shown in the picture, keeping in mind that the blade was also the pivot point, it worked fairly well!

    Ok got the stems shelved til spring.

    I put what's left of the bow and Stern breast hooks on the bench, I think it's a bit odd that the grain runs cross ways to the hull. Notice, the bow BH is much larger then the stern, which was small I suppose to give the pole person as much room as possible when standing on the aft thwart.
    Anyway, going to reproduce these in cherry

    I also ran the grain athwartships on my sharpie build.
    I can't seem to remember where, but it was suggested as better to do it that way...? Stronger maybe? I wish I could remeber where I got that from. Maybe it was in The Sharpie Book.

    2 1/8" X 5.75" X 10.75" tight grain cherry, 1" book match split. Hard to see unless you can enlarge the pictures which I think you can. Wet shows grain better,. Edit: snow storm today (1/4/18) think I'll get the burn marks out maybe epoxy the joints, cut them to rough size.

    This is how the splash deck was. Not sure I like the radius and may go with a more triangular look let in flush to the cherry breast hook

    I cannot picture "triangular" whereas that curve runs sweet and respects the curve of the sides.

    Well it's not a decision I have to make yet Nick.

    The splash deck was made out of half inch White Cedar. I could make it out of quarter inch cherry but I don't have quite enough Cherry to make the boards. So I'll probably go with resawn deck boards from a Big Box store to get red hues of color in the splash deck.

    It's pretty hard not to think of this boat as a BIG lapstrake canoe

    Well after 25 years I finally got around to raising the thickness planer in/out feeds to the table saw and bench height of 36 inches. I think I'll be using the planer more often now!

    6/4" X 6" X 12' cherry

    Ripped into 1/2 inch planks stickered and lightly clamped to acclimate to the new environment after cutting, it was kiln dried. Final thickness will be 3/8"

    Last time I used the planer(DeWalt 733) was on beech which is very hard. A couple knots exploded while running some boards so I was not hopeful for the brand new blades that were in there but! They did a great job on the cherry! Cleaned up all the burn marks from re-sawing on the table saw.
