The hip braces that came with my high deck Night Heron hybrid do not match in size or shape the braces illustrated on pg 47 of the construction manual (although they do look like the braces illustrated on pg 5, the kit parts). My confusion is that the installation pictured on that page (47), showing the braces extending from deck top to hull bottom cannot be made with those (braces) provided. My question then: should these braces be installed from the hull bottom to (perhaps) where the strip high deck meets the plywood hull top? Does this effect the attachment of the backband? By the by, the braces provided also do not have a "pre-drilled hole" as it says on pg 47 "the hole is the pilot hole for the backband attachment."
