Once the daggerboard box has been assembled and the slot cut in the bottom panel, its time to epoxy it in place. Here’s an easy┬ámethod of clamping the box to the bottom panel using two threaded rods with wooden blocks, washers and nuts at each end. With the lower blocks held up against the bottom of the boat, the top blocks are┬áthen tightened down. Don’t forget to put packing tape on the bottom blocks.
