Mac, fun yet frustrating too. As a result of some questions re: decks and bulkheads I decided to look at mine. ( The 50/50 canoe was designed with peaked decks, flat panels pitched like a roof or tent. ) Since I liked the looks of the cambered decks, I changed them. Well now I am about to laminate another bow deck beam with the after deck beam radius. A straight line from the stem to the rearmost f'ward deck beam left the others untouched. The "others" are at the mast partners and reinforce the deck by effectivly tripleing the thickness at that point (partners). They gotta be in contact. Make new parts or make the plywood bend in two directions at the same time. RogerJ
