Hi, I'm a new member here and a new builder. I'm considering building a Wee Lassie and think I would prefer stemless construction for simplicity. However the plans that I have from Feather Weight Boat building are intended for both inner and outer stems. Is there a way to adjust the stem drawings for stemless construction?
It's fairly easy to do, but hard to explain to someone. You need to use a fairing strip, and cut the stem forms to match up to the outside profile of the inner stem. The fairing strip will help you match the bevel on the stem.
Mac Sure ! It would be easy to do. One thing I don't like about inner stems, is glassing over them. I would much rather go stemless. It's just as strong. If you like the looks of outer stems, they would be easy to put on a stemless build.
