Re: Strip: How to store hull? *PIC*

: I'm not sure you need a ton of supports under the hull but it is
: crucial to cut a bunch of sticks, one for each station with
: notches matching the width of each station. The edges of the
: hull fit into the notches and the sticks then keep the hull from
: spreading out or curling up/inward. Keep them in place 'till you
: are ready to join the hull and deck.

I'll definitely second that. Here's a pic of my SECOND hull ready to go up above for storage on load slings. The first one is now a toboggan. It went too far out of shape in a couple months of summer heat to use. Live and learn.

If you're building a Guillemot, I've got a cut list for the spanners.
