Pardon my ignorance, but what are shear clamps? I am still learning the lingo here. Are they batens that you glue to the edge of one panel that another panel will be glued to? I call these batens but maybe my terminology is off.

Maybe a list of terms for newbies could be helpful here.

Actually, searched for 'boat building terms' and came across this website. Very useful!

edit - no links to competitors website please! :)

Turns out battens are what I am referring to, according to this site.

Cheers.

Sheer camp is nothing more than a strip of lumber glued to the top edge of a gunwale. Sheer clamp is sort of a kayak term (for my purposes)... used to glue/mount the deck of a kayak onto the main hull of a kayak.

Oops! My apologies Matt, I didn't check that before posting the link. Maybe I can find another non-competitor reference with the same info. Right idea, wrong application!

Just as a word of further explanation the word "sheer" refers to the line where the deck meets the hull. The timber strip that goes there helps hold the deck to this location hence the term sheer clamp.

Yep, got it! I was thinking that the strip would provide extra strength to prevent 'shearing' of the attached panel or deck from the underlying panel.

Anyway, regardless, I know what it is now! Thanks.
