I am building a Shearwater Hybrid and I have a question about glueing the shear clamps to the top of the hull. What is the best method for forming the clamps to the curvature of the Plywood? It seems to be a long 'W' and looks to require a fair amount of bending. Will a ton of clamps suffice? Do I need to tack it with brads or staples? Should I wet the shear clamp and prebend?
Thanks in advance,
