Well it’s been too quiet on this thread so I thought I’d throw out another gem, but really 500+ views and only 3 people have things to share. I guess all the vise questions are on the different bench threads. Anyway here’s what I made about 10 years ago. Boats require some real creativity when it comes to clamping and this solved a particular problem, namely clamping a toe rail down to the deck for fitting and fastening. The hull prevents any direct clamping. This is shown with a short chain just for the photo. The head goes up at the sheer and the lower part goes down to the keel. It is adjusted to the most convenient link. So if you need to clamp around corners this will do it.
