    I rebuilt a Windemere livery skiff.

    Her keel batten and stern wedge is 1 inch sideing. I don't think that Swallow has a CB (may be wrong in that) so you do not need to swell it around a slot.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    3.1 inch sideing does seem a lot....I would scale it to 1.5 - 2 inches max ? ..Swallow has no Cb as far as I understand it.

    Wait.

    You can reduce scantlings in situ on a MODEL, too?

    I am learning.

    The book says Swallow has no board, which is why we prefer her to Amazon.

    Your wee ship lapped gains are “totes adorbs”.

    I keep threatening to make a wee lapstrake model, too. I have a lot of great softwood stock. I may just dream up a dream boat, too.
    I love this project.

    Peace,

    Rob, we both know that in the real world Amazon would have out-pointed Swallow and utterly destroyed her in the race towards the end of Swallowdale. The Amazons would have been burping pudding long before Swallow trickled in.
