I know from my last build it gets easier after the first few but still...........
Drilling holes in a boat is always a problem for me. Just finished chain drilling a 4 inch hole in my deck to mount a seat. Still sweating.

Running around like a head with it's chicken cut off.

My DF 90 on my old 5.8m rib was offset by 1" according to the manufacturer. I never measured it so can't confirm whether it was or not. I never noticed any handling issues so it must have been ok.
