This photo shows long pipe clamps to port and starboard which are clamping the cabin-top-beams end-wise, and a central clamp which is providing endwise pressure on the foredeck beams. Two small clamps are compressing the mast trunk sideways between the cabin top beams, and two spring clamps are holding the cabin top beams down vertically in their pockets in the far aft bulkhead. The big boards you see running the length of the boat are temporary spacing template fixtures that will be removed after glue-up. they were provided with the kit and are very handy.
- The aft edge of the foredeck is supported by a piece of plywood that is epoxied onto B2, the piece is in the kit and is pictured below. I will modify this piece to fit on either side of my extra reinforced deck-beam-gussets.
