OCAD spaces things attached to lines (decorated lines) based on the frequency of nodes. This also affects dotted lines such as vegetation boundaries, small gullies and marshes. This produces weird effects when a long curve has few nodes:-
This vegetation boundary has three nodes, the line and nodes are indicated, the spacing is clearly at sea.
To solve this problem you can either:-
Add more nodes on the sharp part of the curves, or
Draw sharply curved objects with another drawing tool, such as the freehand, or line tool.
