    I couldn't find large pieces Sam, The local craft place does have rolls, but they were out, these are 18x24, I just lined up multiple pieces. The templates are actual size, just some are 1/2 the beam.

      The breast hook was also just trace and cut



      form #3 required me to transpose the 1/2 template to construction paper, set on a level and 90 deg line, trace and then flip the paper to make the full piece.






      just have two more temp forms to make, and the transom...

        The plywood frames don't remain in the finished boat, or do they?

        Looks like a great start of the ladder/strong back.

          No John, they just hold the longitudinal battens in place til its all secured together and sheathed.....I see some builds cut them down some and use them as braces, Im thinking of boxing in the bench seats, and filling them with floatation foam, also gonna use foam board between the battens, then ply over them for a smooth deck.

                That's the narrowest one Sam, just under 4' wide from tip to tip, the other two sit outside the outer rails, so I may have to trace them from the long section of ply.

                  Ok, got form #2 built, did it the same as the other.





                  Then notched for the battens





                  2 down, 1 to go

                  the spacing is somewhere in the manual, I have to look that up before I secure them.

                    Looking good Zool! Why look up the spacing in the manual? I think you should just wing it, make it bit more challenging .
                    This'll be a fun one to follow.

                      Update:

                      Today I decided to work of the skiff, it was raining out this morning and didn't feel like glassing the other project.

                      I left off needing to finish the final temporary form, and the transom assembly.

                      I followed the same procedure using the cardboard paper and templates. I taped 2 pieces to the needed size, and traced out the template.







                      Then cut it out of the ply.



                      then notched out for the battens and keel




                      That's all 3 forms done.

                        I made the template for the transom, traced and cut it out of 3/4 ply. The plans called for 1x3 framing around the perimeter, notched for the battens, then a motor board in the center, and a cross brace if motorized....so I decided to just double up the transom and avoid all that fuss, and gain some strength.






                        I notched only the inner ply, to accept the battens.



                        I plan to glue and screw it together and still have to add a 14 deg bevel on the bottom for contour. It will all be glass encapsulated like any other build...

                        Still trying to source out local wood for the keep and battens, considering cedar if I have to.

                          Good call on the transom, simplify things and add strength. That's a whole lotta notches there! What would be the optimum wood for the battens and the keep (whatever that is), or does it really matter what wood is used? Just curious. Nice to see you back at this build, it's a cool project.

                              Yea guys, I can get syp in 3/4 or red cedar in 3/4....but neither at 16'...so ill have to scarf either one..

                              White oak is whats called for, but I have to travel too far for it. It probably wont really matter because im gonna sandwich 3/4 foam boards between the battens under deck and sides. The bottom will be 3/8 ply on the outside and 1/2 decking, the sides get 1/4 ply on both the inside and out. Then its all glass wrapped inside and out.

                              So I suppose I don't need the strength of the oak.

                              The cedar is about the same price as the pine, but has better rot resistance.

                              The "keep" is just my bad typing, was supposed to be "keel"

                              I also have to figure out the motor cutout, weighing the price options between long and short shaft tiller ob's.
