    Hi Gero,

    It's sometimes a little hard to find the info in CC's book but the dimensions of all the pieces can usually be found in the appendix/materials list at the end of the book (p. 185/6). In this case he says to cut the gunwales to 16 inches less than the three arm span length. The stems will extend 8" past both ends of the gunwales which will bring the overall length back to the three arm spans, give or take a bit depending on the beam.
