 About the project

Both the left and right lower deck pieces have been glued in place. Before this was done, a final check was made to ensure that all holes were filled and epoxy coated to ensure that water will not be able to soak into the wood. A template is fashioned out of oak tag for the forward portion of the lower deck. The side pieces could be marked directly but the end pieces cannot be. These templates avoided the necessity of taking many many measurements to figure out the proper shape.
