fore bulkhead too low

Posted by Vic F on Mar 22, 2005

I'm planing the shear clamps, and I discover a problem. When I glued in the fore bulkhead, I failed to bring it up to the bottom of the shear clamp. I did fill that it with epoxy, but now I see that there will be a space between the bulkhead and the deck. It is about 3/16 of an inch low. Is my best solution to plane from the cockpit forward down to that point on the shear, to keep it even? I don't think I should cut a shim piece of 16" radius to bring the bulkhead to the right height. Or should I? Help!
