Chese 17, when I strap my deck pieces down tight, there's a noticable dip at each end where the curve transitions..., it almost looks like a hump in front of a hollow. Is this normal? Will it even out when I begin nailing the deck down?
I also noticed that it's very difficult to get the narrow bow and stern areas to bend over and match the curve (albeit slight) of the sheer clamps..., I think this is related to the issue described above.
And yes, bending the forward deck over the beams was a bear! Now I understand the "tortured plywood" expression.
Appreciate any thoughts.
