Building the KARA Hummerİ





Ater you have attached the bottom, you can use a jigsaw to trim the edges. A Roto-Zip tool (laminate trimmer) or router may give you a cleaner cut. Use a good wood rasp or sander to round off any sharp edges, because fiberglass will not form around a sharp edge!

Cut the top plywood as specified in the plans. Attach both ends, and then the sides using the nailing instructions provided. It helps to have an extra set of hands to wrap the plywood across the top deck. Make sure that you are bending your plywood in the right direction, because it really only bends correctly in the long axis.
