    I too have received some plans that have been folded like that, and I have laid them out on a board then place Brown paper over them and ironed them flat before I rolled them and placed them in a Roll folder from the P.O.

    Yes Pete D I can completely agree with you in regards to "Lyle"
    he has helped me many times by verbal & lending me his notes on these vessel's. He is a gentleman that is a fact and always willing to pass on his knowledge. Yes we have a lot of great times, also very funny times at the lake.

    G'Day Tall Paul,

    If all else fails I use "Liquid Nails". it sticks anything to anything. I use it on all my boats in one part or another. Check out your hardware store! it is waterproof and once stuck it stays stuck. if you happen to use a little too much it wips down with water, giving a very smooth finish.
    hope this is of some use mate.
