Hi. I'm building a Chesapeake 17LT and I am getting ready to work on the adding the coaming. I read through the instructions and they make reference to nailing down the coaming spacers through the forward deck beam. Upon inspection, my deck beam is a good 3-4 inches forward of where I need to be nailing. What's the protocol for this? Will my ring nails go through the deck and into the cockpit??
Thanks for thoughts.
