Trapper 15.38 bow/stern jig.

Post by LesForgue » Fri Jun 05, 2015 12:32 pm

Matt,

on page 15 of the 37 page instructions, it says Check to ensure the bow/stern jig is vertical.
But a bow/stern jig is not mentioned or pictured anywhere else in the instructions/plans for the Trapper 15-38.

Of course I could check that the bows themselves are vertical at that point,
but I'm wondering about the jig, am I missing something that would help the build come out better?

Thanks
Les
