17LT Bulkhead

Posted by Pat on Jun 4, 2006

I'm in the process of building my first CLC kayak and so far it's been going well. The forum has been very helpful.

I have a question about the bulkheads though. I am unsure on how "exact" the bulkhead notches need to fit with the sheerclamp. My bulkhead has a gap that I think is too big to fillet, but I'm not sure what the best method is to adjust it (I've included a link with a photo). Should I trim the bulkhead until it fits better? Are there any other options?

All suggestions welcome. Thanks.
