Now that I am working on the more vertical strakes I am returning the the original designer recommendations for supporting the hull on two pillar and pivot supports. This allows the boat to be tilted one way or the other to allow a slightly horizontal plane for attachment of the stakes.
Once I upgraded my construction jig I proceeded to start attaching the 5th board. Detail of the bow is shown to highlight how to fair the boards into a single plane. In my case I cut a 22mm strip from opposing boards, tapering in from 12 inches from the board tip to 1/2 the width of the board. When the boards are overlaid the two boards have the same thickness at the bow. I think it is easier to see in the photo then for me to describe.
