Method for Fairing Ply Boat Framing

Jim Luton posted this trick on my Facebook Page and I thought I'd pass it on:

A little trick I use for fairing co-planar surfaces, such as chine to keelson, etc. is a stiff piece of angle iron with sticky back sandpaper on one end. The bare end rides on one edge, and the sandpaper end cuts the other edge, at the correct angle.

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.
