I am trying to finish a 28 foot cabin cruiser that I got from an estate sale. It is in the framing stage and I just finished leveling it up. I now need to bevel the frames so I can attach the plywood bottoms. Is there an easy way or am I stuck using my elec. planer.

Electric planer is the best way I know of.  Other than that, a hand plane is a lot of work.
