After cutting fitting all of the battens there were many small wedge
shaped pieces of wood left over.
I worried about the stress between the motor stringers and the
frames. The aluminum angle brackets may twist out of shape or loosen
To neatly take up the stress, wedges are placed astern of each frame
on the bottom side (currently top) of the motor stringers. This will
more capably transfer the stress from the stringers to the rest of the
boat than the aluminum angle brackets with a very small addition of weight.
