Continue the line upward from point G to the top reference line. When a plywood end form is made to this pattern, the top reference line will rest on the strongback. Carefully compare your full-size layout with the plans and scale drawings. 11, which shows the Kayoo bow profile. Next, use the coordinates for the stern profile of the design you are building to draw that pattern full size in the same manner. 6. Points are plotted similarly for drawing the stations. Here, Kayoo stations #1 and #13 are already drawn.
8). Two 8-foot-long strips are required to go the full length of the hull. Join them at the center station. Longer boats, such as tandem canoes, will require more strips and more joints, or longer strips (10 feet long). Proceed up each side toward the keel strip in the middle of the form. 8. Attaching the stringers. driver. They need not be specifically wood screws; sheet metal screws work fine. You may want to have a few #6 screws in shorter and longer sizes available. A lot of small screws have to be driven into your form, so a small power screwdriver will make the work go much faster and easier.
This takes maximum advantage of carbon’s strength and stiffness while adding Kevlar’s impact protection, toughness, and resistance to tearing. Since Kevlar is lighter than fiberglass or carbon, this would also reduce weight. This is one of the great advantages of composite structures. Different fibers can be combined to take advantage of their distinct properties for various combinations of cost, weight, stiffness, and impact resistance. It is not uncommon to incorporate a layer of Kevlar between two outer layers of carbon for making bodies and other components of race cars.
