I don't imagine many of you have run into this problem because this half-completed boat I have adopted was not built strictly to the plans and I imagine most of you are working more strictly from the plans.
It's mostly alright, but I have found that while trying to do the final placement of the cockpit, the rear opening ends up 3/8" from the rear bulkhead. It appears the rear bulkhead was placed a tiny bit closer to the bow than the plans show. The plans indicate more space than that between the cockpit opening and the bulkhead - maybe an inch to an inch and a half?
I can easily shorten the cockpit opening to about 5/8" to conform to the plan. Is there a reason to have this space between the rear bulkhead and the rear opening of the cockpit? Perhaps the backboard support needs some clearance, or??? Do I need that space to hang the back of the seat?
