Re: Very Large Hull Indentation

You already did the first part.. got the weight off. get some heat lamps try and warm the inside and out, see it it's finds it's "memory" If not get it even warmer and try to push it back into the curve it once had. If it doesn't want to stay.. cut some 1/4- or 3/8 strips of wood press them inside the curve, and use sticks to hold them and the hull back in place from the inside until it cools. Just sticks may puncture
