Stems for Dave
Stir, laminate, clamp, wait 24hr and saw in half. The inners are for all purposes gone, just fragments left to indicate the bevel and depth. I do have one tip left with the full width top and inlet area for top plank. I like pilot holes, and will likely drill them in the stems same as I do near the edge of planking, in both red and white cedar. I am going to fill all the gunwale holes as well, and saturate them along with the wedges to give them some strength as well as something for new fasteners to bite into. Rebuilding the rib tips will be fun, all of them on one side and half on the other. Fun, wow.
Hall of Flame, oh thats good!
