I read the instructions and watched the video. I am building a Chesapeake 16LT from a kit. The manual says that you don't want the blunt end of the scarf to potrude above the panel's surface. It also says that they should overlap about 1 1/4".
I noticed that if I overlap them 1 1/4" then the end potrudes above the panel's surface. If I pulled them back then they overlap about 1 1/8" or less.
How do I reconcile this? What's the minimum overlap I want and what is the most I would want the scarf to potrude obove the pane's surface?
