Hi all,

As the bilge panels are longer thn the bottom panel on the MC16.5, I have adjusted the overhang to be equal on each end. What do I do to fill in the gaps between the panels and the bottom. Do I force the panels together and do an end pour? There is a lot of tension in joining the panels to form a chine fore and aft of the bottom panel. Why is this not explained in the manual which incorrectly indicates that the bilge panels are wired from the "point" of the bottom panel.
