I glued down the forward deck plywood, which changes the feel and defines the forward space. The front two frames area is now officially a crawl space. The little stack of strips is part of the 32 pieces that I ripped for the remainder of the deck planking.

Getting ready to glue down the first of my deck planks. First step is to try to get a good pattern figured out.

Today was a day spent gluing down the lower deck. I am anxious to get it laid down so I can get the combing in place and start on the raised decks and cockpit area.

Spent the last few days focusing on the bow and stern areas between the combings. I wanted to round them off a bit, thinking the straight lines on the plans was a little harsh, so I'm laminating some curved forms. I like them so far.
