Re: fabric decks?

If you use a full length shear strip, you can groove it and use long cap pieces with a tapered wedge underneath to force the fabric into the groove. The coaming seal on several commercial SOF kayaks seals in a similar way. This lets you remove the fabric when you want for packing, repairs or refinishing interior wood. Randy
