Let me see here in carvel the planks are attached to the frames and in strip the strips are attached to each other.
Now if you convert a carvel design to strip and say you decided not to reduce the number of frames. Example: My friendship plans call for frames @ 9"c/c with carvel planking. I'm no thinking about stripping the boat and leaving the frames on 9"c/c.
What would be the best way to do this? Should I build the boat on mold and than put the frames in? If so how would you fasten the frames to the hull? Would you screw through the strips or would you epoxy them in? Or should I build every frame and attach to the keel and than start stripping?
I'm still aways off from starting this project, but every question addressed now will help set me on the correct path. I still need to find a book and learn how to loft.
