Chesapeake 14 hull issues

I am building a chesapeake 14 from plans and measured everything about 10 times before I cut however the bottom panels are about an inch longer than the sides. Do I maybe have my spreader too wide? I'm also halfway through a 16 foot from the book and don't seem to have run into the same problem.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

RE: Chesapeake 14 hull issues

I had the exact same thing happen when I was building a sail rig from the plans.  I ended up trimming the long panels to match and didn't notice any ill effects.

I'm pretty sure the same thing happened on my 17 LT. Left the overhang at the stern and probably removed it after filleting was done using a japanese saw and shinto rasp while cleaning up the hull for glassing

Thanks guys, that was what I was planning on doing, glad to see it may not be just me then! I will re-check my spreader just to make sure i've got that bit right also.
