I have to squeeze my boat shed time between other competing obligations and interests. Not to mention a desire to hold on to a good nights sleep. As such my boat building seems to progress in micro-bursts.
I in a few hours I was able to cut the bevel and the gains on the port side garboard to get ready to glue the second strake.
The change in angle between the garboard and the second strake is large enough that it seems that the bevel takes away all the gain. So that the plank does not appear to sink down into the garboard.
Maybe it is possible to do it by cutting down deeper and reducing the gluing surface. But to my eye, it seemed better to focus on the fair landing of the plank on the stem rather than trying to worry about the gain on the garboards.
My hunch is that all the subsequent strakes have much smaller bevel angles and so the gains will look better.
I managed to get out at 8:15pm and glue the port strake #2 this evening. I’m pretty pleased with the way it looks.
