My stem rabbeting situation looks a little different than those depicted in the books by Rossel, Steward, Chapelle and others. Or maybe I am missing something fundamental.
The confusion for me seems to originate in that the keel is sided 3", and the stem sided 4" (back to the second station or so). The offsets give the rabbet above baseline from stem to stern, and it seems to fair in nicely on my profile lofting. But it seems like the rabbet is for the 3" keel width all the way to the bow, that is, no apparent transition or such to the 4" sided stem.
On the deck plan I've drawn the planking thickness where the waterlines meet the half siding of the stem to get the rabbet, back rabbet and bearding lines. But the rabbet found this way does not match the rabbet faired on the profile because of the aforementioned difference in width between keel and stem.
Do designers always draw rabbets in profile this way, that is, the keel and stem rabbet line faired continuously even if they are sided differently?
To take advantage of the whole 4" width of the stem, I plan to project the waterlines/stem half siding intersection in plan up to the profile to get my true rabbet cutting line. But I am a little timid to make chips fly until I check with you guys....
