Following the suggestion in the Wood Duck 10 construction guide, I used stretch tape to "bind" the deck and hull when tacking the other seams. It seemed like a really great idea, and everything was matched up and taped in place. Next morning, the center section of the hull was about 2" narrower than the deck. The hull had pulled loose from the tape.
A trial fit made me believe that I could wire the deck and hull for the final glueup.
Not so. I just finished the final glueup of hull and deck and it looks like I'll have a Wood Duck 10 Mod 43.
Despite prying, tightening, use of reserved vocabulary, I'll have to trim 1/4-3/8" from each side of the deck for a couple of feet forward of the cockpit. I think the main downside of this will be an ugly joint. Anyone experienced this? Have suggestions?
