haha funny you should say that as its what i wanted to do at college (did metal fabrication engineering and mechanic instead!..... my fibreglassing is top stuff mind!, still better to seek help then make a hash up!

I have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing just never had to make a whole floor before from scratch... lol
this is the first powerboat I've done though

I'm going to stick some photos up of the progress though haha

Hi josh get yourself a hot glue gun and hardboard , rip the board down into
100mm strips
Using a compass or dummy stick scribe the shape of your hull working your way down the hull glueing the strips together and glue tac to hull .
Using a straightedge from chine to chine at least 2 of them tac a strip in line to the strips on the hull to the straightedges , then glue upright strips to the top and bottom strips you have already done .
This will give you a stick template for your stringers .

By the way

You can use this method to take any shape for anything , bulkheads , soles , stringers .
Do not get hot glue on your fingers .
