Sheer Clamp

I bought mahogany batten for making the sheer clamps. A first attempt to strake it to the bulkheads failed. The stuff is to stiff. No chance! Therefore I decided to split the battens in order to make them more flexible.

Straking the split battens to the bulkheads was a quite easy task.
Additional advantage: after glueing both halfs together less tension is left into the sheer clamps.

Working time been invested: 546 hours
