Grand Banks Chines....

On the older wood GBs there is a tendency for the underbody planking to push outboard (look at the above pictures - see the gap between the frame and the chine log) - thus crowding the chine log outboard as well (usually in the amidship area). Usually this isn't a issue - most Banks by now have crept all they intended to - (more than a 3/8" gap between the frames and the chine log is the trigger point) - and if it is, the chine can be stabilized by through bolting.
