Actually, by removing the rocker, you simplified attaching the chines by a ton in not having to curve them again. Keep us posted and I'll be posting the unveiling of the Toller Old School here in a couple of days :D

Ya i could imagine how that would be horrible to do for the bow and stern. Even with 2 people. And the old school huh. Working on a new project? Or already finished?

Pretty much finished, one more coat of epoxy on the top side and glass the coaming. Hope to have grass rails on by the weekend and after that, she'll be pretty much done. Its pretty much a drag/row/tow double ended layout boat. I built it for our local DU chapter to raffle off.

hey brad if the side of the floor isn't exactly flush with the chines will this cause a problem? i didn't notice until after i put the sides on and there's a small gap. i tried to closed off by pulling the ply with some extras screws and i think the glue kinda filled the left over gap.. but i just wanted to make sure.

Not going to make a huge difference. Just fill it with thickened epoxy once you sand the floor back flush with the chines. This is where I was telling you, that little variances like this will compound and to use the plans more as guide while getting actual measurements from your boat.
