    Patrick,

    Ja, ik woon in Nederland, in Zwaag om precies te zijn.
    Since I don't know what your location is I can't be precise, but I would try the nearest shipyard or steel construction company.
    Depending on the size your working with, you can do a lot with a self build hydraulic press.
    I'll have to scan some pictures on the subject, be patient.

    Roling or bending the stem

    Helo Peter ,

    Thanks for the reply . I am in the near of Prague and there is not so much in this area . The radius of the stem I have to ro, or bend somehow is R=38 for a Waverunner 55 - Bruce Roberts Design .

    Check with your steel supplier , many herte have the ability to roll stock.

    Many a backyard boat has been helped immensly by rolled chines , rather than hard chines , at little cost.
