First time builder. I am "stuck" at the point where I am beginning to attach the sheer panels to the bilge panels. This is much more challenging than assembling the bilge panels. As you are probably aware, the sheer panels don't bend easily and don't stand up on their own when stitching them to the bilge panels. I am considering driling holes in the sheer panels through the sheer strakes to hold them together at both ends and then seperate them in the middle with a spacer as wide as the beam. After that, I expect to be able to set the sheer panels on top of the bilge panels and begin stitching. Is this the common practice or is there another way to do this?
