Back to the duck

I got the fore deck on the boat.  Did this one a little differently.  On the first two ducks I made the deck seam at the cross member   That let a small addition to the side decks at the transom.  With this duck I put the side decks on first from the stern fwd.  That left a about a 6 inch gap at fwd area aft of the fore deck   I cut the deck large enough to fit from that gap to the bow.  The decks are now just 3 pieces.

Slow duck

Slow progress on the duck.  I've had other boats on my mind.  I did get the side decks on.  Need to get some more wood for the foredeck.

Off the forms

I decided to tale the boat off the forms and do the glass work later.  I'll be working on the decks next.

Bottom glued

I got the bottom glued and screwed on.   I used titebond II glue and ring shanked nails around the chine.  In the field I used #8 3/4 inch SS screws.  I ran the router around the edge.  That's one advantage for using glue over resin. You can do the routing the same day.  The other is cost.  I'll make a bow block later.
