16 foot Dory frames

I'm building the frames from the 16' Dory plans. The plans say to notch all frames, but frame #4 is not big enough for the notches. Do I leave them off of frame #4, or am I missing something? Thanks...

Notch. The form is to the inside of the planking.
You could cut 3/4" off the bottom, but this would mean shallower notches for the chines.
Probably best to cut chine notches first, them cut off bottom of form for keel.

OK. That makes sense. Thanks.
