This is my first stitch-n-glue boat. I'm stitching the garboards to the bottom. I was very careful to put the bow point at the exact point specified on the planks. With jut over half the stitches made, I see that the stern is going to come together short of the end of the bottom. It looks like the bottom is about 2 inches too long.
No, I don't know where my lofting error is, and it doesn't matter much since these are the parts I have.
I don't see much recourse other than shortening the bottom by shaving down the edges toward the stern. Loosening the wires and shuffling the planks doesn't look like it would buy enough to make things come out even.
Any other advice before I start trimming?
