Hello Roman,

The butt block are used to join the bottom panels and side panels together. They are glued on to what is going to be the inside of the boat.
I read of many gluing the buttblocks and having 2 same sides, to prevent that I laid my all my panels as if the boat was open on the floor and then glued the butt blocks.

A pic of butt blocks inside the hull.
As of the transom angle, I don't have my notes nearby. As soon as I see them I will let you know the measurements.

Thanks for the answer, the picture really helps

I thought, I would be stitching the Bottom and the Sidepannel together from the outside Can I put the butt blocks anywhere or do they only fit at a certain part of the pannels?

**Edit**

Ok, i did some googleing. So the Butt Block is used for glueing the pannels together. In my Stich&Glue-Books it is recommended to do this with fiberglass-tape. Can it also be done with fiberglass-tape or is the butt-block necessary?

In the OB15, use butt blocks.
