Robert, My deck planks are 2 3/4" wide, 3/8" thick with 3/16" inch spacing between planks... I used thin screws with wide washers in the space between planks to hold them down while the epoxy set. I stained the deck and then put about 8 coats of varnish on the entire deck before I caulked the joints. I used 3m 4000 UV (black) to fill in the grooves. Then after that set up, I applied about 5 more coats of vanish over the deck boards and the caulking. I did not use any fiberglass cloth anywhere above the waterline. Your boat is really looking great.... Neel
