The older fiberglass hull I had was tossed into the trash, the hull was so off measurements and shape... I decided to build a wood hull from some plans I have that are 1/100. They are from a detailed plans book by Ing. Prasky. A quick trip to the print shop and the plans are 1/144. Just to be sure, I used the graphics program I have to resize and print off the hull lines. I used the plans from the print shop for the placements of the hull ribs ect.. By using both thte computer and the printed files, I have a very nice hull. I did decide to not model in the casements... too much crap to deal with. Maybe a second build later will have them. There is a nice template of the casements in the plans. The ribs and all the stringer pieces, along with the keel and casement stringers are ready to piece together. Everything fits... Now the gluing begins Putting in the 1/2" balsa bottom for water channel.
