This one, maybe? https://www.southernpaddler.com/community/threads/new-boat-build.8688/Thanks for the idea And the suggestion I had not considered that but was thinking about one of your boats where the tumblehome stopped at the Deck. I haven't found a picture that boat yet But I think I will consider that idea. I can build the tumble homes with 38 strips It is just that I had hoped to be able To plan a simple cedar strip pirogue that kids could build.
I am beginning to realize That is simple plywood Uncle John's Is the best project for youngsters,imagine that we had it right 30 years ago!
Thanks for your reply
After seeing the panels shape drown on the table I see how much it curves.
The cut back on the ends of the tumblehome keeps throwing a mental block. Not saying you should, but do you think the strips would bend on the table if they came to a point on the stem? Sometimes if we want a certain feature we have to do what it takes even if it is harder.
Have you considered stripping the tumblehome on the forms? They would probably make the bend not confined to the flat table.
Yes the dowel is against the epoxy seam that joins the sides then embedded in epoxy mix.The deck is not rely very hard to do. Basically a very large breast hook with a plank (panel) attached to the rear edge. The ends are shaped to support the tumblehome panel the same as a rib (vertical support) you would need at that spot if the tumblehome went to the stem. Seedtick once had a tutorial about fitting breast hooks. I'm sure stitch and glue will be easier.
The deck was over built to accommodate a troll motor if needed. I was thinking of your Water Moccasin boats so popular in this area.
I had a question about the stem dowels embedded in the epoxy, but the pictures may have answered it. They are completely covered, correct?

Beekeeper, Been looking at making the tumblehome so it could be bent out of normal 3/4 " strips. Not too concerned about this current build, but wold like to make some plans youngsters could work from. When it quits raining and I can get the boat off the table, I'll try some bending. I keep comming back to your suggestion here about the tumble homes comming to a point. I guessI may not understand the concept you're suggesting. My search skills on the forumn are lacking, but I'm guessing you have built a boat like you are suggesting? Thanks fo the ppatience and help.Yes the dowel is against the epoxy seam that joins the sides then embedded in epoxy mix.
