The second keel strip is glued to the first but not to the forms. The forms are now covered with tape so that the strips do not get glued to the forms.
The spring clamps that I use come from Home Depot. I have 50 or 60 of them. Home Depot sells them for $1 each. Today I went to Aco Hardware and they have the same clamps for $11 each !!! At eleven bucks each I could pay for a whole kayak with what 50 clamps would cost. I think I will get some more of them before Home Depot changes the price.
