Therapy--- It looks like you started from 2 points with a closed loop that was too big. 

As a rule, I don't sew a closed loop of boxing, when I start boxing I leave about 5 inches loose, then when I come around on the start I cut to suit leaving a 1/2 seam allowance.  At that point.... I sew the loop closed...then fish attaching it to the box.  Sorry if I said the samething as other people.

BTW-you can fix what you have by adding a piece of boxing.  Blast the seam back about a foot then then seam in a longer piece of boxing to make it to the corner with seam allowance.

The 5"loose sounds like a safe allowance

Hi Mike your right i made the top plate seam allowance 3/4 wider so the seam would lay on the top side of the boxing i got that tip from June.  there's no bottom plate just plywood and yes the side against the hull are 2" wider
