Chesapeake 16 missing piece of fibreglass cloth?

According to the Chesapeake 16 instructions, there should be three pieces of glass cloth: one for the cockpit, one for the hull, and one (to be cut into two triangles) for the deck. I only have two pieces. One was the right size for the cockpit, so I thought maybe the other piece would be big enough to cut down for both the hull and the deck. But now I have got to the point of covering the hull, the cloth is just the right size - so I think I am missing the third piece for the deck. The checklist that came with the kit delivery just lists two pieces of cloth though, so I am puzzled.

Sorry about this, Simon.  We'll put the missing piece in the post today.

Thanks very much! I'm glad I was not somehow failing to find a way to cut it up and get enough cloth for the deck as well.

Anyway the hull is covered and it looks great.
