High School Boat Design Project Question

Hello...a couple of my students are designing a hull for a boat for a local competition and they have encountered an error while using the Shell command. Please see attached. I have alttached Inventor part. We are using Inventor Pro 2013 version. Specifically they need the top or deck of the boat shelled out to a thickness of 1/8" for all sides of the hull to create an open-hulled form. But, as I said earlier, the Shell command is giving the attached error. We do not know which vertex is causing the problem. Can anyone please help?

From what i can see in the model there are some edges that don't look right:

Not sure what the exact cause is, but sketch1 and sketch2 aren't fully constrained.

So make them do their sketches properly and see if that fixes the shelling problem.
