Man I am missing the Building Forum!

I have taken Wren's plans and altered them sightly for a SOF version. Biggest part was I had to nail down the deck so I could create frame offsets. Couldn't just built forms by eye as I did for the strip deck. Still some refinements to work out.

One change in the hull I made was to raise the Bow. It came out lower than expected. Question is, is there any reason to expect that this should cause a problem skinning it? I am leaning toward nylon and I read that Nylon is more stretchy than polyester. True??
