Need a little advise on releasing the hull from the forms on my Auk 17.
I had seperated the deck from the forms so I could glass the outside of the hull. The outer hull is glassed, and I was going to remove the forms and glass the inside of the hull. I am having a little trouble getting the inner stems and the .5, 1, 16, and 16.5 forms to release from the hull. My thought was to cut the strongback in the center so I could get a little pry leverage in the bow and stern. If I do that, I loose the integrity of the forms when I want to put the deck on them to glass it.
Would the best choice be to put the deck back on the forms, glass the outer deck, and then cut the strongback so I can remove it from the hull?...or does anybody have a suggestion for how I can get the hull released without damaging the hull or strongback. TKS
