Many thanks,Jim...Yeah I did that... the issue arises when I "dry fitted"the wing transom /stern post assembly into the cradle.Anyway I shall continue now that I have seen your photos. Thanks again, DanHello Dan! Thank you for the compliments!!! This build log is not just to show the build process and skills, it is to help others who might have questions when came across and stumble. There is no such thing as 'intruding' in my log. I am learning along with you, and if I can be on help, that would be the best honor for me! Please submit questions you may come across!! Please do so!!
Now, back to your question. Yes this part a bit tricky, First of all, use the self-adhesive template and affix to the part. one is going on one side, another the opposite side of BL30. You will have to grind (shape) both sides of the part shaded area.

Once you shape it, test the fit to the inner post (Part BL19), if necessary open a bit scarphs in the BL30 and BL19). This has to be done on a fit & try, as many times until it fits perfectly. Also, pay attention, the part BL30 has to angeled to the sternpost

Pay attention for 4 notches, they should be facing the back.

Let me know if this helps.
Alert is only our entry-level kit, and the kit being designed will have a much higher reduction degree.
Many thanks, Paul! I will definitely take your suggestion into account.Jimsky, Before you shape parts 2 & 3 fit & glue 1 & 4 as they are holders for 2&3, don't pre shape & pay attention to where the shapin line ends near the top as this is very important for rib alignment with the keel! ( I'm guessing they get cut off at this point later as the Ribs are glued to the Berth at the top.
Its easier to remove lower 2 & 3 shaping to fit rather than too much at the start.
