I'm having problems with a few offset measurements for the Guillemot forms from "The Strip-Built Sea Kayak" book. Form 16 has a keel measurement of 1.56 which doesn't seem to work with the other measurements for form 16 - doesn't produce a smooth curve - plots in wrong direction. Also form 16.5 (keel measurement of 4.03) and form 0.5 (keel of 6.12 and waterline offset at 6" of 0.05). Maybe I'm missing something but all the other forms seem OK. Can someone help me with this one. Thanks.
