Frame Reference Lines for trapper - Pickle

Post by ralphobarly » Sun Apr 24, 2011 12:32 pm

Hello all,

I'm building a trapper. I've currently stitched 4 panels together ( the bottom 2 then one more on each side) I'm at the stage where I have to insert the frames to stitch it to the proper shape. However, I have just noticed now that I have gotten myself into a pickle. The frames are to be stitched onto "reference lines" which I have since sanded off. What I'm wondering is if I could get a measurement from bow/stern of where the reference lines are supposed to be for the trapper 35 frames?

Thanks

Matthew

Thanks again
