Okay - 8:4 White Oak (1 13/16" thick) run through the jointer to get one 'true' edge then ripped into pieces 2" wide then planed to just under 1 15/16 - Bloodwood run through the jointer to get one 'true' edge then ripped into pieces 1 13/16" wide, then each rip sawn in half and planed down to just under 1/4" thick. One photo shows first piece of bloodwood glued up to piece of white oak
.

Question is: I can resaw the 2 1/4" wide glue ups of white oak and bloodwood to 3/16" thick strips 2 1/4" wide - or - I could glue up two 2 1/4" glue ups to give one 4 1/2" wide slab and resaw that into 4 1/2" wide by 3/16" thick strips. The second option would result in half the amount of 'strips' to apply onto the hull, but I wonder if the subtle compound curve of the deck is better suited to narrower strips, Any real life experiences welecome.

Most deck only have 1 direction of curviture. The individual strips would be straight. So putting several together might work. But, i think I would just put 2 at a time.
