More Decking

I used 3/8 ply for the decking. It went down quite nicely and is very strong. Now that the deck is on, the boat is super stiff and strong, yet I can still lift up either end by myself. Before I build the cabin top, I will be building the structures for the keel box, and most of the cabin interior structure since it is open and easy to work on right now. I now have my yearly training and checkride for work coming up at the end of the month, so I won't be working on the boat much for a few weeks. I'm really looking forward to getting back onto the project in March!

Stringering The Deck

During the first part of February, I was able to continue work on the deck. I used 3/8 ply to build a system of plywood stringers. In the photo looking forward, you can see the halfpipe I built for my boys for Christmas--one of the many reasons, I didn't get anything done in December.
