Hull design question

Post by Conrad » Sat Nov 09, 2019 2:00 pm

I'll probably forego any changes from the plan and put it on, bu my question is: Why does the FF stem drop about an inch deeper than the keel? Is this a design thing or does it have a purpose? See highlighted area in photo over frame 5.

All this is from memory. ..do 50/50 chance of being right

You should have been able to put a center line on your keel...
And bevel ..both sides of that line down ...so it follows the lines of the boat...

If your keel is lower...you may have to build it up...
To bevel it back down. ...

Will look back and see if I have a picture. ..
