Hi!
I would also like to ask
The bottom panel and the side panel, fit together nicely, except for the transom in front of about 50-100cm, there is a 1cm gap.
whatever i do this gap remains.
What is the maximum gap that can be filled with fillets?
should I stay that way and fill in or grind out the rest so that the gap is smaller there as well?
Thanks. Dennis.

It looks like you're building a boat! :lol:

Your stitching is not evenly spaced. Try to keep a standard spacing except at problem areas.

Are you getting some panel contact somewhere else? Are you using pvc spacers on the inside?

Gett all of your stitches on loosely and slowly tighten them from transom forward. A little at a time and then go back and do it again!

When scaling, small errors may appear and that can be the reason for that gap. 1 cm is nothing to worry about however, has BBsig says, you stitches spacing is irregular. Give them some slcak, on all edges and try again, tightening one at a time.

Thank you very much for the answers!
There were stitches everywhere, I already took them off here.
But I don’t give up, I do it over and over and over again until it becomes perfect.
I do it on the weekends and show results.

Hi!
I reattached panels several times today.
That's the maximum I could do.
If I tightened a gap, it became a hook or hog on the outer edge of the bottom of the boat.
if I made the bottom straight, there was a slightly bigger gap in it (10-12mm).
It is only towards the stern of the ship, about 15-20 cm long.
No more trying, I fill a gap in epoxy fillet.
The bottom of the boat is now completely straight, everywhere, last 2 meters. (I have such a straight bar)
