Doubling The Tangent Stringers
The tangent stringers are the transition from the flat ship's side and flat bottom to the round radius sections. The tangent stringers have to be doubled to join the plywood segments. The doubling is made from a 10 mm ply strip of 75 mm width. I had already scarfed the plywood strips to 7.5 m length from restovers.
