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.

Working hard on the OB. Trying to get as much done as possible, it won't be ready for the builders meet, but I will still take it to the meet for show and tell😁.
I will be glassing the deck next. Should I use 12oz biax tape for the deck seams? Or the 6oz woven tape?
The whole deck will also get covered with 6oz woven cloth.

Use the 12 oz.

Yesterday I rounded all the corners and started glassing the decks. Ran into a little problem, ran out of glass tape. Ordered yesterday and got my supplies today. Impressive. Thanks to the to all at BBC for the fast delivery.
