Mark, Thought I might offer a suggestion that will make skinning the hull a bit easier -- if you're not already too far along.

Anyhow, the sides can be skinned in one continuous sheet from stem to stern, but making the curve up front can be challenging. I use watter and steam to pull mine around. Another way is to run the grain vertically on at least the front two bays, though a vertical grain all the way back is also acceptable.

Hope this helps.
