I was very careful not to bang my deck with the hammer when banging the beautiful nails down through the deck and into the sheer clamps. But because I was so careful, they're not flush and smooth the way I normally like nails to be in the non-boating world. Will the minor elevation disappear under glass and epoxy? Or should I carefully use a punch or something similar to bang them a bit flatter?
To be as clear as possible (mud?) I can drag my hand across the surface of the boat and not cut myself on them, so they're against the wood, but I can feel them.
