Tangent doublers

Tangents doublers are used to give you wider surface to glue the straight skin and the bent skin pieces together. They are screwed and glued. I also have made the side stiffeners of the sugar scoop on both sides.

Sheer clamp

Sheer clamps are glued and screwed on both side. It was very hard job to do. The sheer clamps had to be tensed in two different directions during fitting to the bulkheads and the cleats. It needs three men’s work. I had also made a simple frame for fitting the hull of the sugar scoop area at the stern.

Stringers’ installation

Stringers have to be placed into the precut holes on the bulkheads. Bulkheads mean the vertical (perpendicular to the backbone), stingers mean the longitudinal (parallel with the backbone) structure parts of the sailboat.

After all stringers have been glued into their appropriate position the next step will be gluing the sheer clamp cleats, sawing and beveling the sheer clamp and place and glue the U shaped doublers onto the bulkheads.
