I stiched the bilge panels to the bottom yesterday. I aligned the bow end of the bilge panels to the bottom as described in the manual (the curve of the panel flattens out just at the tip of the bottom). The photos below show a gap at the bow and stern end of the boat. Also, my bottom panels were squared off at the ends. I'm trying to figure out just how those gaps are going to close. Should I add a stich to the bottom end at th stern and bow?
I am anxious to get this out of my basement and into the garage.
