BUILDING THE POLE DANCER CEDAR STRIP SEA KAYAK

051 Inside of the hull is glassed, including fill coats. While a chemical bond is still possible I laminate two strips along the inside of both sheers to receive the deck. For this design, where the angle at the sheer is acute, this method works very well. It is less easy to use a sheerclamp on hulls with more rounded sheers.
If you are using sheerclamps remember to leave enough proud of the gunwhales, especially in front of the cockpit, to bevel the angles.
