Putting The Bottom On With ClampsBy Erne Gassmann #976 "Devil Duck" (2es 1eo 1ea 1ad 1ar)
I just wanted to share my buddy Ray Skiles method for bending the bottom. He used three small straps and I used one heavy load strap and two stiff backs. Works like a charm. It's screwed down will take it back off tomorrow, cut to size the glue and screw it back on.
When I cut the bottom to fit and reinstalled for gluing, I found two straps and stiff backs far superior to one strap. As usual Ray is ahead of me already glassing the corners. The slot is for a daggerboard which I will copy and photograph later.
