Strongback and brackets used for Long Shot Skin on Frame Kayak.

The brackets are mounted in a straight line on top of the strongback. The keel stringer rests in the top notch of the bracket and the rocker of the boat is defined by the height of the brackets; typically those towards the ends are slightly taller than those in the middle. I ran a string through the brackets to help align them in a straight line.
