"Brian, great job on building that very historic design, not too many of those around. Shawn, I had the same problem with my flared 18 x 54 dory, I had to modify the oarlock block as well, I think 12 degrees. Regarding oarlocks, I have been using…"

"Hi Brian, for my launch, I simply drilled the gunnel spacers.   DEFINITELY not enough angle, and my oars were binding in my NRS oarlocks.  I think I need a 15° angle (steeper/more vertical) from the angle iron plate.  what…"

"I use 5/8" thick chine logs. never a failure.  But what I find most important is that flat sawn material be used.  looking at your grain lines, you are trying to bend it the hard way against the grain.  rotating your stock to be…"

Shawn Baker replied to Brian Wilson's discussion Chine logs
"Hey Brian, Is the chine log fastened to the ply side at the chine?  If not, consider resawing the chine log into (2) x 3/8" thick planks, and laminate them together.  The laminate will be slippery enough before it cures that you can…"

"I don't get over here much anymore. Here is my .02 after building close to 40 boats.  Use West Gflex on that scarf. I had a few failures with t-88. Wipe it down with rubbing alcohol several times first. Steam that chine!. Clamp it on the…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( jamiepollard744@aol.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
