Re: Sheer clamp size & wo

The Arctic Hawk does not use nails or screws into the sheer clamp. I think the laminated ply might split if nails or screws were sent into it's edge. The deck is pulled down with ropes instead (lots of them). The deck fittings are bolted through the deck, which has glass on both sides. If you laminate the sheer clamps, stagger the butt joints to avoid kinks in the side curvature.
