from the top view you can see some of the frames not quite right need work in the faring process to get hull to look right, also the stern framing is not correct as shown, I think I will do a tracing from the plans rubber cement to bond paper and rubbr cement to the jig, any other sugestions are more then welcome.

pasting the location of the stern timbers on the jig is a great idea. It is important to get these timbers in the right place.

As for the cant frames the hull is looking good. At this point take a small sanding block and start to shape in the bevels. Hahn was accurate when he drew the shape of the bow and stern frames so you should be able to shape the hull without to much problem. At the keel where the frames look like they step that is ok it is typical of setting up these frames. As you sand the hull the stepping will flow together

Very nice build! I have a Lauck Street Halifax on the shelf. It is also Hahn-style with precut futtocks. Bob Hunt designed the kit with CNC cut parts, so no laser char to contend with. One day I'll get to it. In the meantime keep up the good work!
