The eyes have it

Here I go again, can't leave well enough alone. If I was to go back to day one on this build, here is a change I would make. The rib that sits right under the windshield has a shape that pushes the chine a little lower than it should be by the time you bend the wood around it. Instead of a smooth line from the bow sweeping down the side of the boat, it has a slight bump in it...Probably could have left it alone and only I would have known. But the more I thought about it I wondered with the model was running at a fairly fast speed if this bump might cause some porposing? That and the fact it was driving me crazy again the more I looked at it made me do something about it. Got out the masking tape and used it to put a new line down the side that I can use the Dremel sander on to bring it to where I want it. Luckily there is plenty of wood in that area to sand on. This will be done on both sides.
