    Hi Richard, it does seem really odd , especially if you look at the plans for the planking which seem to indicate planks are long enough. Anyway who know maybe a bad set of wood, but sure will work!

    Hi All,

    New to building and just got my first kit, Billings St Canute. All going along well until....

    Looking at the stern of the boat i am trying to dry fit it all before committing to Glue, I cannot work out how to fit the prop shaft and the rudder mechanism.

    The rear bulk have been laser cut to allow the prob shaft to go through, however the stern has not, the shaft is about as thick as the wood for the stern so i cannot believe you have to drill it, the same problem is with the rudder.

    Sorry for what may be stupid question and thanks in advance for the help
