The Kitty Hawk 18 uses a two piece clamp. I thought this would be easier for amateurs to build, although I am not so sure about that now. I imagined you would finish the sides and then flip the boat over. The upper clamp could then be mounted working down. But, the first two builders have both decided to mount it while the boat was still upside down! Mike because he thought it would be just as easy and Ben because he wants to finish it along with the hull. In order to get some more room to work under the boat, it has been hoisted up onto some cribbing.
