Is the ~waterline stringer where a self-bailing sole goes?

Gary.Dierking said...

Yes, that's to support the cockpit floor and it is several inches above the normal waterline. That line also serves as a reference line with offsets above and below it to lay out the side panels.

Hey Gary, Is it possible for one to build an extended Ulua in three pieces like a waapa ?

Gary.Dierking said...

Yes, but I would build it in one piece first and then cut it between closely spaced bulkheads.
If you don't have the space, it is still possible to set up 1/3 of the molds at a time, but matching the sections is less of a sure thing.
