Not really giving up but I do need some advice. Some years ago I began a restoration of a 1964 17' Century Resorter. As with most projects it requires more work than originally thought (what project doesn't). Along with a chine log, some frames and some planking that needed to be replaced, the stem was rotted at the joint of the gripe and stem. I pieced the stem together as best I could and made a pattern for the new stem. Baecause of the amount of rotted wood involved I wasn't able to to get a great match and subsequently the stem didn't fit properly.
I have contacted every group or individual I can think of trying to get drawings for the stem or any information to make one that works. All of this has been to no avail and I have run out of ideas. I would welcome any and all ideas, advice, any thing on how to get the dimensions I need to make a stem that fits. Thank you in advance! Taylor
