Strake #15 from Sheer Strake

Starboard side as #15 meets Stern Post

I’m worried because my calculations didn’t come out exactly. I will make it work.

The rest of the Strakes will butt against the base of the Stern Post. 🤔🙄

#15 Strake shape forming

I only went with the After part of the ship on this one because the portion of Strake that lays again the Sternpost has to be exact so I didn’t want to risk making 1 Strake that goes from Bow to Stern.

As I get closer to closing it up, it gets harder to clamp.

Using the Rubberband Clamps

I’m using my Rubberband Clamps more and more to press the Planks flat against the Bulkhead…

I have a feeling that I’m going to need a long Cheater… 🤔🙄
