Having an issue with fairing the chine as follows

Hi I have started to build the monaco,
Just note that I have built timber ski boats some 30 years ago both ply skinned and clinker in timber.

I am up to the frames on the engine bearers, stem and keel installed and have notch the frames for the chines, however there are issues with the chine being fair as follows

Frames 1 and 2 the chine is straight
There is a lump in the chine in frames 3 and 5 making the chine look flat over frame 4. However, from frame 5 to the stem is fair and looks great.

I have checked the frame dimensions to drawings supplied and all are within 1/16" at the most.
I have checked the frame positions on the engine bearers, and all are correct to the drawings, on centre and level, and have double checked all the above with a 3rd party to confirm.

To get the chine on both sides fair and good to the eye I have had to do the following to the notches but have not added or trimmed any from the frames.

• take 3/8" of the stern
• take 3/8" of frame 3
• add 3/8" to frame 4
This gives a great fair line and pleasing to the eye.

When I run a fairing batten over the sheer I have the same effect with frames 4, 5 and the transom

Are you able to give me any ideas as to why this may be the case?

Thanks in advance for any help you may give me

There's a lot of monaco builders out there. I'll leave this question to them.

Up date on frame issues, contacted L-Glen they stated this is common to have to trim or add shims to fair the chine.
Was a bit worried when I first come across the problem as thought I had stuffed something up?
Seems to be coming along fine now

Which engine have you guys used in your builds I have ordered a PCM XR406 with reduction 1:1.23 transmission?
