Michael so far so good but try to get the main deck on now, before you place the color skins on. the hull sides need the fold down tabs of the main deck to keep the shear line from being scallopy

Yes. Figured out you need to build a box and then add the pretty stuff.

Already made my first screw up but I think I recovered. Put the keel upside down!! Used the other copy to mark the formers (bulkheads?) in the right place.

Just want to be sure on this. Do I glue them in order bow to stern or start in the middle and work outward. Apparently at this stage if you get it twisted you are sunk (pun intended).

Second stoopid question.: Is the wide part of the bulkhead at the top or the bottom. If I put it with the narrow part at the bottom with the number oriented up then the bottom of the keel won't touch the bulkhead. Are there not 3 views of these things somewhere?

With it being a water line kit, I would think the narrow end goes down, while the wide end is deck side.
