Re: Strip: What did I do wrong here, and how can I

Are you building without staples and using some form of jig to push the strips onto the forms like "L" or "C" shaped pieces of plywood. If you push the strip onto the form on the inner of middle edge of the form your strips will take an un-natural shape as the strip should hit the form on the outer edge or edge nearest to the ends of the kayaks. And if you started like this and then used bead and cove strips, each one in succession will follow the last.
