bow form bracing
The bow form was deflecting downward too much when the rails were being clamped up, so I added 2 angle braces up from the strongback to the cantilevered form. 4 screws in each side seemed to stiffen everything right up. Whew!

there's an ongoing discussion in our forums about this project if you have any questions or comments.
