Sheer Clamps for Kayak
The sheer clamps are of red cedar and measure 3/4" x 7/8" x length for your project.
The sheer clamps reside in a matching notch cut into the station molds and are held temporarily with drywall screws.
Although covered over by the first two rows of bead and cove strips, the sheer clamps remain attached to the molds when the hull is lifted free.
Then, these clamps become permanently attached to the underside of the deck.
Later, when the deck and hull are being permanently joined, the sheer clamps are there to ensure a correct fit and a place to use thickened epoxy to effect that joining.
This item requires custom shipping due to length. The freight will be calculated and charged separately pending your approval and prior to shipping.
