Not just hard but impossible.

It's looking fine, Chris. You can get it back a little by tapering but personally, I wouldn't worry.

I am marking out the gun ports for the second row of gun ports.
When it comes to the foremost opening in the bow, if I follow the dimensions given, the port will be across the “twin” bow formers.
Can someone confirm that this is the correct placement, please?

Hi Goddo, can confirm the bow formers are visible through the ports....You won't see them on the finished build.

The covers on those ports will be closed so you just need to dig them out enough for the doors to fit the gap.

Update on planking and gun ports.
One question, if I may: When it comes to fitting the final top two planks at the bow, would it be acceptable to glue small strips of plank offcuts on the inside to give these two planks something to adhere to?

Hi Goddo, coming along very nicely.

I wouldn't add anything to the bow strips at this stage, it shouldn't be necessary. Take a look at stages 41 and 43 of the Official build, this is when you will start working and finishing off this area, it shows how everything will be held together. Any queries, let me know....

Hi Chris

All looking good.

You are correct there is a danger that the top plank may not have much to attach to by the time you get there. The solution is to leave enough space when you lay the plank below. If it is close to the edge, then taper it back a little to provide adequate space for the top plank to sit nicely.

As Alan say, follow the instructions precisely.
