- I wanted planking the radius segments between two bulkheads with a single sheet of ply.
- I wanted scarfing the segment joints.
|Bulkhead and Stringers are prepared for planking.|
|The radius section to be planked is covered by a piece of plywood of sufficient area and temporary fixed by 3x16 mm screws. Then the positions of bulkheads and stringers are marked from inside the hull to the ply.|
|After the piece of plywood has been removed again, the surplus for the scarfing joint, the overlap for the tangent stringers and the drilling holes for the screws are marked.|
|the prepared piece of plywood is flow-coated with epoxi|
|The hull-side scarfing joint is prepared. First roughly by using a hand-plane ...|
|... followed by using a belt sander|
|Stringers and bulkheads are coated with epoxy. First thin with a paint roller, ...|
|... then thick with a notched trowel.|
|Small metal latches are temporarily bolted to the hull to hold the radius segment in position until it is screwed in place|
|The radius segment is positioned ...|
|... and then screwed in place|
|Done. The latches can be removed again. The screws are removed, before the second radius layer is applied.|
