I am preparing to install one of the CLC Marquetrys on the deck of my 11 Ft Little Auk. The deck camber on this boat forms a noticable ridge on centerline rather than being radiused as many of the boats are. My concern is that the onlay will crack along centerline when I press it down onto the deck. Has anyone dealth with this? Is there any way to soften up the only so it bends easier? Suggestions welcome.
Another thought: Has anyone tried scoring the marquetry on the top, along centerline?
