Thanks Steve, Jamie and Carl. It's getting closer. I hope to have the boat basicly finished by the end of the year except the upholstery and trailer.

Finished installing the coverboards and wider centre board. As far as the colour scheme for the deck I was going to use unstained sapele for the in-fill planking and ebony stain the coverboards and centre board, but have decided to go with a blonde infill and unstained sapele for the coverboard etc. Same as the hull. I guess my main consideration was our climate. As it is often between 90 and 110F during summer I felt the darker colours would absorb too much heat. Yet to shape the coverboards but will do that after I do the rest of the planking when fairing the deck.

I feel for you Tony on the heat considerations. We have similar climate here in Austin with the sun being brutal in July and August. As much I like the look of wooden decks, I am going with painted decks for my cruiser.

What I am amazed by is the variety of designs all these wooden boats are given. I just love the look of all of them. I look forward to seeing what you have in mind for the infill area. Take your time on this.

Carl,
Its not the heat that does you in, its the humidity. 110 and 95% humidty and you're just a wet rag, but winters are glorious. The in-fill is going to be Hoop pine which when coated will have a honey blonde colour. Having it milled now so a week or two should see the deck glued down and thinking about caulking.
