As I looked at your pictures I got to thinking about your armrests... Are they accessible enough that when the seats are in you can cut in openings for a little "glove box" area in them? Figure that would be a good space for things like glasses cases, sun screen, phones, keys, koozies, etc! But then again, maybe there isn't any room behind them due to throttle, electrical runs?! Anyway, just a thought/question, you've probably already thought of that!

The final coat of varnish is complete on the armrests, all interior parts are now UV protected, tonight i cut and test fit the first half of the subdeck, it is not glued down at the moment, it overhangs the dash by 1/2" , the interior edges are 7 3/4" from the outside sheer edge and i used a 4" dia. Circle to round the interior cockpit corners. Coming right along. 8) 8) 8)

Starboard rear section of the subdeck test fit and screwed down, traced out the port rear tonight, tomorrow i will cut it out, test fit and screw it down as well, then remove all four sections, encapsulate the bottom sides with epoxy, let that cure then glue and screw them all in place permanently, i left a 1/4" lip all the way around the outside sheer edge to bevel/fair to match the hull. 8)

Looks good! I love working on the parts which give the most visual progress. Always feels more rewarding to see big changes.

I agree, visual progress in large doses is the best. Well done Josh. Bet it's getting harder to go to sleep at night now.

NIce Grain on that plywood - almost seems a shame to cover it with deck planking! :lol:

All test fit work, pre-drilling and screwing is completed on the subdeck, today i removed the subdeck, masked off my contact points and rolled on a coat of poxy shield, when that cures i can start permanently attaching the subdeck, moving right along.
