It's all a compromise! The plan for my boat has a virtual right-angled join between hull
, with around a 35mm radius on it done by a router. Certainly the easiest and quickest way to build it. And it actually looks better than you might think.
But I wanted a bit more of a curve - so (with Bob Oram's permission) I cut an 85mm radius from all the bulkheads and strip planked a 100mm OD curve into the join. So I had to rip 3 planks, about 45 feet long, tapered at the ends, then I had to use more epoxy
to join them, more glass to cover them, I have to fair them on the outside (reasonably easy) and the inside (MUCH harder). It has increased the cost and weight of my boat, and probably added 200 - 300 hours to my build.
Is it worth it for a slight aesthetic improvement? TBH at this stage I'm not really sure.....
