Looking for suggestions, I'm having difficulty getting the bottom panels pulled together at the bow seems as though when I pull them together one piece wants to go underneath the other? I am 100% positive that my measurements are correct!

They don't have t be pulled together A reasonable gap isn't a problem, you can also use pieces of pvc pipe or something like that underneath.

do the PVC pipe thing... 1/2", 3/4" or 1" depending on the angle. The pipe will for them to stay slightly separated. You only need them about 1/4-1/8" gap from each other. fill the gap with epoxy and let it cure for a day. Then tape it. It won't come apart. At least not without a saw being used.

Ok thank you, the other issue I have once they're put together it rest below my chine line on molds A,B&C ? What could I be doing wrong?

It's almost as if the panels are too wide width wise but I know for a fact they are not!

Just an addition to Jayson, before you tape it you have off course also have to fill the gaps and holes where the stitches were, then sand the completed weld smooth, then tape it

Did you look underneath? do the panels rest on the molds? did you put a slit in? if you did and they aren't resting on the molds put an extra slit or 2 in, when all good also fill the slits with epoxy putty before glass.

Sorry I mixed up your comment about the chine line with the sheer line, never the less again something must be wrong.
Starting to think your whole frame setup is wrong, why do I think that? because first your stringers you claimed were cut absolutely right didn't fit and had to shorten and shave them, and now your bottom panels don't fit, something is seriously wrong, how much are those bottom panels hanging over the chine. Again Pictures help a lot to help

If you gonna put pictures on, also take a shot from the back with the transom in it

This is what I meant when I said it's kind of setting on the molds

Sorry about this one but I only have 8 in of work space at the transom

I'm sure it's very hard to see but this shows the panel sitting very good along the chine line.

This shows the excess if I line up the panel to my chine line.
