> Ross I am about to start a Coho and if I understand this right the idea sounds pretty cool: is this a suggestion to take a length of glass tape, epoxy it onto the inside of the deck on the shear just enough to keep it in place, then once the deck and hull are in correct position, finish it up? If so, sounds easier than trying to fit it fom the inside of the hull.
