Sassafras scarf question

Posted by Gunnar Lorentzen on Apr 22, 2007

In the plans for Sassafras 14' (The Canoe Shop, page 53), at STA.6 the distance to the edge of the plywood is 5/8 inch. Is this distance half the scarf length? I.e. will station 6 line be the common point where the 2 halfs are glued together?

In other words, the scarf will be 5/8 inch on each side of the STA.6 line, adding up to 1.25 inch long?
