Hey Nick where did you get the aluminum strongback. Sources and dimensions would be nice; thanks in advance.

The strong back is an aluminum extrusion, 2"x4" with 1/8" walls. As delivered it was 20' long. Using a diagonal cut, I got 2 pieces each 13' long. I purchased it through Yarde Metals and they delivered it. Before I used it I rounded over the corners using a 1/4" radius round-over bit in my router.

Hey Nick the aluminum strongback is the way to go .  I made one of  plywood (per your book) but a bit more flex than I was comfortable with. Building your Great Auk design and I stretched it by 8" so now 17' 8" .  Dabble in woodworking as a hobby but nothing ever like this....time consuming but loads of fun watching it take shape. Jointed, planed and ripped my own strips and am hand planning them to fit each other over the curvatures of the forms ( vs bead and cove) ......it's a labor of love.

I can build one of Andrew Linn's Lazy Weekend Canoes in the time it would take to set your strong back up. the trumpet was obnoxious too.
