I am about to cut the CB slot in the keelson for my whilly boat. Can someone confirm the dimensions? The length is 34" (from 10" aft of station 3 up to station 5) but my novice eyes cant find the width. Looks like 1-1/8" from station 4 detail but that is for a dagger board case.
Also, does anybody have a tip for shaping the top of the keelson at the stems. The full 3-1/4" width from ST3-6 and tapering of the sides from that point were no problem but cutting the curve on the top face is a bit fuzzy. Seems like I could just epoxy the full thickness right on top of the stems and plane them down until the curve looks right?
