    Default Lumber Yard Super Sport Skiff.

    Well guys if you saw my last thread you might have seen my plan following failure. What happen is I made the boat stem to a 51 degree angle instead of what was called for. I did this on accident and thought my boat was firewood when I saw the bow rise up when the halfs came together. Instead of starting all over I shaved the bottom of the boat on the tip of the bow until it came back down at a nice slope. then I had to cut off 9 inches on the beam to account for the sharp angle of the stem. I cut off about a good 3.5 inches off the bottom of the bow which for those of you who bought the plans or made the LYSS, this is beyond the measurement that Walt gives you.

    Well done, I actually bought wood and progressed so far as cutting the stem for a 16 LYS myself last week. And I deviated already, the stem is "notched" if you will as opposed to just a xx deg vee. I should know by the weekend if it works out.

    Wow keep me updated that notched stem would be very neat. I didn't realize at the time how much the stem deg played into affect. Some people said I must have flipped the boat around by accident. No... Just off 10+ deg on the steam.. haha. I'm going to be putting the bottom on sometime this week. First I have to plane down the chines until they are level. I didn't use the chine bevel because I thought it would be easier to keep them raised and bring them down to the plywood later with the electric hand planer.

    Yes sir...and did you cut the top of them down to 10 degrees? Really helps to keep the standing water off.

    No but after I get it flipped it might be a good idea to do that. Btw your stem looks really good.
