After you hold things in place with the straps at the deck beam and bulkhead you can put on a couple intermediate straps but don't rely on them to pull the deck down all the way if you're using ring nails. You can press the deck down to about an 1/8" to the sheer clamp with the straps then use the ring nails to finish it while pressing down with the hand holding the ring nail. Wait until the epoxy is cured to sink the nails about <1mm below the deck.
