this machine bends steel bars. they need "sheer", the vertical dip in the hull from bow to stern, and sideways curve to form the widest point at the beam to the narrowest at the bow and stern.
but... there are some cracks in the cedar strip hull. so i have decided to fiberglas it. a guy is coming tomorrow.
this is getting out of hand.
it will be pretty amazingly strong i think once all this is done. for real. gimme strength.
