Vacationer Transom stringer question

Recommended Posts

OK....I've read the directions at least 1/2 dozen times, and I still don't get it.  The plans for the vacationer call for the 2x4 bottom transom stringer to be placed 'forward' 1/2 inch of the rear edge...and also called for it to be cut at 32 degrees. 

First question...if the rest of the bottom panels are cut at 27 degrees, as are the side stringers...why 32 degrees for the transom stringer.

2nd question is why is it placed 1/2 inch forward of the rear edge, and not flush like the side stringers? 

Kinda hoping these are just a typo, because I'm feeling kinda dumb right now!  :?

WHEW!!  :grin:Thanks a bunch Craig!  I was starting to think I've either gone looney...or I that I've made some BIG mistake that was making the directions obscure (Lord knows I've made plenty thus far)!, and I was starting to really get worried...as here in N.E. Pennsylvania, there is only about another week or two of half-way decent weather to work and was really hoping to get this phase done before buttoning up things for the winter.

Thanks again!

You know, I wondered if this day would ever come... I built my Vacationer 10 years ago, and I just cannot remember how I did some of these things.  I do remember the text he's referring to, but I don't remember if I just winged it, or what.

:shock:
