Here you can see the bent strip in place, glued and clamped. Posted by Hello

In order to fit the deck support around the bow it is necessary to make tiny cuts in the strip each 1/16 to 1/8 inch. After the cuts are made, it is easy to bend. Posted by Hello

I had a little difficulty with the bow thruster and I figured I would call Model Slipway for advice before proceeding. I decided to start putting in the deck supports. I carefully measured and glued the deck support to the hull. I used some thin CA and will reinforce with epoxy or Evercoat at a later point. Posted by Hello
