Yes I do. You can imagine that from a plan A4 size taken from a magazine, blowing up drawings for templates, transferring them to wood, then sawing or cutting the parts out can give some differences. And I measure a lot during glueing and fitting parts to check. I now have to sand or shape with a plane the stringers and then make paper templates for the ply skin.

After the summer break, I started the bottom of the hull. I first cut 2 parts in plywood more or less to shape and glued them in place. The edges in way of
the chin and transom will need to be shaved flush after drying.

The bottom planking is all cut to shape and glued. The last part to glue is the front which is severely curved.

Thanks Laura.

I went shopping at the DIY and bought a 5mm diameter steel rod and a brass tube with the same inner diameter. Also a package of long M6 nuts for the coupling and that fit the crankshaft thread. From ebay, I got a prop with an M5 inner thread.

The bottom planking is completely glued now and I trimmed the edges to make them flush with the stringers.

I finished making the sterntube and the propeller shaft. The prop shaft has a M5 thread for the propeller and the counter nut. On the other side, the shaft is kept in place by a wheel retainer.
