    Not to be beaten. Still wanting to build the Fisher 44 I have invested in this lovely machine. An electric coping saw. It is brill for the profile cutting and as close I could get to the accurate as using a laser.
    So starting again with the FISHER 44

    Looks a good and useful piece of kit. Like the light mounted above the blade, excellent idea.

    At the start of my build I said I had cut the ribs with a jig saw. The more time I spent trying to clean up and make good the cutting the more disillusioned I got with the build. It was never going to happen. I could see I was never going to be happy with it. It was going to be a chore rather than fun.

    So all the work and the hours that been done was now to be wasted.

    Brain wave. Its going to make a unique hanging basket.
    Hooray !!!!

    Don't despair Graham. The time wasn't wasted. I have experienced those dead ends more than I care to admit, but have come to believe that these are learning experiences. I call them positive negatives. They have taught me what not to do next time.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Your hanging basket idea will indeed be a novelty!๐Ÿ‘

    Started my new build. Keel is 10mm ply and ribs are 6mm ply. Have not got a band saw so cut with jig saw. I wont do that again. A lot of preparation before I start planking. Scale is 1" to 1ft. on the plans so photo copied and reduced by 20%. Think I am going to have a real problem with the round stern. But do like a challenge

    Will the fantail stern be vertical, or have a little tumblehome? If it's vertical, maybe soaking two layers of thinner material (half the thickness of the planking,) will make the radius. If there's a little tumblehome your planking will have to have a crescent shape to lay flat on your deck frames.

    On my "dream Project" (1:150) Tanker I built up stern and bow section BB fore and aft of second and last ribs. Since you already did all ribs maybe inserting precut and roughly shaped blocks of wood (balsa?) will help get the job done.
