I’ve been trying different ideas for how to deal with the bow.
The first option is fairly straightforward. There are holes in the bulkheads for the bowsprit. Blue lines are fairing lines that will be scribed on the parts.
Option two is a bit more radical. There are pieces at an angle somewhat analogous to cant frames. Horizontal pieces matching the curve of the bow will hold them in place.
It looks cool, but I don’t know if there is any advantage to it.
