In Response To: Tricky Stitching? (Jed)

: I'm about to stitch the bottom of my Chesapeake 16 to the side panels. It
: seems like I will need to force quite a bit to get it to come together,
: particularly near the beam. Is this normal? (I've followed directions very
: carefully, have the beam at the right width, and the bottom panels at the
: correct angle, I think) Any advice from fellow stitchers? thanks.

recheck your rocker, sometimes if this is too pronounced or too flat the sides won´t fit. Have fun Joaquin
