I'm new to the kayak-building world and have a quick question. I recently ordered the Guillemot kit from CLC, which includes some designs and Nick Schade's The Strip-Built Sea Kayak. I'm getting ready to put the forms on the strongback and noticed a discrepency between the book and the plans, and I was wondering if someone could help me out.
On page 73, it says, "The location of the first form on the strongback, relative to the forward end of the strongback, is 11 1/2 inches for alll the designs in this book. Mark 1-foot increments from this first form and label the locations accordingly."
That's straightforward enough, but at the bottom of the page, there's a diagram where the first form is 12 inches from the center, and it appears to be the same on the plans included with the kit.
Can anyone more knowledgeable or experienced help me out here?
Thanks in advance.
