Note: The sequence of panel assembly varies by model. Shown here's the the Cape Fear (http://jemwatercraft.com/proddetail.php?prod=CF).

Start by stitching the bow together. Lay the 2 bottom panels on each other and drill both stitch holes at the same time.
Image

Keep the stitch loose for now.
Image

Stitch the stern.
Image

Place a stitch about every 6" along the bottom seam and spread open.
Image

Locate, mark and drill the stitch holes for the frame.
Image
Image

Stitch frame into place.
Image
Image

As your stitching, you want to maintain a consistent gap. Avoid "hard spots" in your seams where wood rubs on wood.
Image

Maintain the gap by inserting spacers as required. Popsicle sticks found at any craft/hobby store...also inside popsicles...work well.
Image

The butt blcok seams should align (when using JEM Watercraft plans).
Image

Continue stitching in the sequence your plans call for until complete.
