    I'm starting my first canoe, a 16' prospector and I'm not sure about lofting the stem molds. I was able to loft all of the other molds without any problems but the info on the stem molds leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn't have a profile point or a sheer line. I'm using the instructions from "Canoecraft." any assistance with this will be greatly appreciated.

    Bear Mountain has a forum, that I'm sure you can find the answer.

    If you look in the design section on the bear mountain forum there is an explanation of how to lay out the stem forms in a post about corrections to the tables in the book.

    Any chance you have the link to that post? Maybe I'm in the wrong section of the forum but, I don't see it.

    Yeah, I saw that, I'll have to take another look at it. It seemed a little over complicated but maybe I just read it too quickly.
