Hi all

A question has come up about bending ply. A lot of the early Hornets had very curvy decks (like Demon that came up a while back) These are in about 6mm ply so quite thick. Were these made wet over a mould or steamed?
Does any one remember how the Doe boats among others got their curves without splitting the ply?
 
Many thanks Roger

I don't know how they did it but the rolled deck Doe boats were curved in section AND tapered fore and aft . I would love to restore 353 to the proper layout if you do crack it. The photo shows the layout on 564.

That's a Holt Allen Slim Jim.  2 sections held together with Araldite. Self correcting in heavy weather, the top falls off and the slot opens (a lot!) I'll bring some photos to Netley if I remember. jim
