Hey all,
I've been trying to find out the easiest way of drilling the hole for the bowsprit. In the instructions it states to refer to the overall plan(which ofc i don't have) So trying to get this right is a pain.

Seeing as this is my first build And the hole is a 1 time only thing I really don't want to get it wrong.

Any tips/advice would really be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The easiest way to do it is start with a small drill just above the beakhead. You will be able to shape the hole with a file to the correct angle as the frames underneath the planks are set to the correct angle when first assembled.
