I really could not figure out a better way of doing this, but any suggestions are appreciated
So this is how I went about it
1) Lofted the dimensions onto the boat itself. Luckily I used one of my strips to mark the center line…
Then I used some hot glue to bond a cedar strip in place. I did this because I want to build the keels off the boat and bond them in place later.
The finally after epoxying another strip on top I planed the surface flat to receive the first board.
Now I go ahead and glue all the pieces together. Make sure you very carefully tape around the keel so you don’t accidentally glue the keel to the boat at this time. If your boat is parallel to the water line, this is a good time to make sure the bottom of your keel is also flat and level. Adjust you keel bulkheads as needed.
