Dry Fit of the Deck Boards
Now the real fun begins because you can really start to see the boat take shape. The outside cover boards and King Plank (the green taped boards) are all glued in with epoxy and I have started the process of cutting and fitting all of the deck boards.
In this photo, all the deck boards are now dry fit into place. I still need to cut the boards to the proper length. The deck boards are all Mahogany and measure 2 1/8" wide and 5/16" thick. The spacing between the boards are 3/16" and will be filled with white pigmented epoxy. The washers/screws are temporary clamps to hold everything into position.
