remember, if you go for a belt and braces approach by
epoxying your beams AND tightening the tramp,
remember tp tighten the tramp before the epoxy sets.
If you apply force to the side beams by tightening with a
stiff joint, you Will bend your front and rear beams, and
be in for a whole heap of nonsense.

Suggest you only epoxy the thing together if
a/ it is an old shed that seriously needs stiffening - will
give it a new lease of life
b/ youv'e got pots of cash and get a new boat every year
or two!

yeah but, no but, yeah but, no but!!!
