Strip Planking 05: Setting Up Forms for Strip-Built Kayaks [video]

Here I show using an aluminum strongback and spacers to quickly and accurately set up forms. This same technique would work with a plywood box beam. The aluminum is more rigid, but the plywood will work as well.
My newer book "Building Strip Planked Boats" includes a description of the spacer method of setting up forms on an internal strongback.
