I received my plans yesterday morning and just as John said, I was first in line with my order and payment
My JB, SC20, is "sail number 3"
I guess JB has "sail number 1", and xsboats, the bloke who's building the first two SC20's in the States, will have "sail number 2", and as I have said, my SC20 will have "sail number 3"
I've had a "quick" look at the plans, all 9 sheets
, and I'm thinking I may take the sheets
to a carpentery shop that can laser cut parts
. (Bulkheads and such)
Last night, after the boss had retired for the night, I got the plans out and went over them again. I was looking for the plan for installing "foot stearing gear" but could find nothing on the subject, nor could I find information on the "Stem Heads" that John talked about in his SC20 model video
I'm also having a problem seeing how I can build the hulls as John says in his model video, i.e. Stitch and glue method. Build the sides wire them together bow and stern, then spread the sides and slip-in the two bulkheads, fore and aft, so there are some things "I'm" just not seeing in the plans. Like John said, the plans "are" very detailed and besides, it's been well over twenty four years since I built a boat, that one was a Wharrem 40' Captain
Anyway, I will not be rushing-in to building my SC20, I do want to get it right...First time
But now it's back to clearing-out my shop. I'm almost there but not quite
