Hello everyone. I am a new member to the forum and to boatbuilding and have a few questions. I am building a Glen L-14 sailboat and am at a atandstill trying to figure out how to adjust the height of the stem. I don't understand why the building form is notched 1" X 2" and then I am supposed to add a 1" X 2" cleat in where I cut out the notch? What is the purpose of this? Also, I mounted the stem to the frame member and am now trying to adjust the stem height. Do I need to adjust the angle where the stem meets the frame member to obtain the setup level height required? Please help.

Welcome to the forum. I've no ideas as to how to answer your questions, but may I suggest you repost your questions in the "Sailboat" section of the forum where I'm sure it will be recognized by other sailboat builders who can help. I think it will be overlooked in this area.
