Don't worry too much about getting the angles correct. Just adjust so that it looks good to the eye and "flows" together. The boat should appear fair, with no bumps or hollows. The stems, although made of a separate wood, should normally be very much a part of the hull and should not look like an "add on". Of course, there are exceptions where a bit of keel is desired, but even these should blend well into the hull when a nice job has been done.
If, after glassing, you are not completely satisfied with the hull appearance, you can always paint. I think a painted hull with bright interior can look spectacular. And, it's very practical as paint protects the fiberglass well from sunlight and hides scratches. Just something to consider.
Cheers,
Bryan
