Location of CB Trunk Sheave

How to find the location of the CB trunk sheave. Time to drill it out.
I see it on the plans but there are no dimensions to locate it precisely.

Also, any downside to a shear clamp vs a fillet at the joint between bulkhead 2 and the foredeck?
I have a bunch of 1/8" stock and figured to laminate it to match the curve of the hull.

I can't help much with the location of the sheave, I'm afraid. I have had to deduce the location of some parts due to the lack of dimensions. It seems to work - the drawings are accurate and to scale.

However, a sheerclamp is exactly the way to go below the forward deck - I laminated mine too. See my blog:

As I say in my post, the prospect of applying a fillet through a hole in the bulkhead laying on my back was just too horrible to contemplate!
