The aft bulkhead on my chesapeake 17 lt ( cut out from the provided plans ) was far too small. First I thought perhaps my measurements were incorrect, so I double checked everything, including the cross beam positioning and width, the centre line, the levels of the supported kayak etc... but to no avail. Nothing suggested anything wrong, even the front bulkhead fitted like a dream. I realise bulkheads rarely fit snugly and some cutting is often needed but this was nearly 1.5 '' too small. I came to the conclusion the plan must be wrong and made a new one after my own measurements.
Anyone else experienced similar problems with the bulkhead plans on this particular boat??
