Upside down jig from beginning
« on: February 10, 2010, 11:15:46 AM »
I was thinking a little bit about how to simplify building of G.A.

If u are willing to support my idea I will need from you to extract cross sections from CAD project of G.A. in several points (let say 26 sections for 28 footer, every foot one section, bow and aft are end points) with exact measurement.

Read the instruction manual and you'll see something similar.  The bottom panel assembly (bottom panels and chine flats) are built, then temporary 'framing' is added to the building jig, the main stringers (fore/aft beams) added (supported by the temporary framing), then the bottom panel assembly placed.  Then the side panels are 'fit to the boat' with the bottom panel assembly, transom, and stem in place.  Similar to the drawing that you posted.  Let me know what you think.
