IOM Build

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am currently building a one meter Nylet spirit MK3, having built a Vic Smeed Gosling In ply and balsa, Fiberglass is a little new to me.

I have constructed a jig to hold the hull true. when I have the cross beams in and the fin box am I right in thinking that the deck can be fitted out of the jig

Any one any thoughts

If possible I'd leave the hull in the jig to fit the deck. The hull will twist a lot out of the jig.


Started out in 150ft schooner. Started out RC sailing with 30 year old IOM, then went to an ASBO, then DF65 X2, and now a new Sedici IOM. The Cotswold Model Yacht Club is a wonderful place to sail with friendly people and lively sailing.

Nicolas to attach pictures your post just click on the attachments tab below where you type (in the full editor not the quick reply). Should be fairly obvious from there on.
