Floor is done, that feels good to say. 5/4" cedar decking and all stainless hardware.... too many angles to think about and I am certainly a novice wood worker but it is solid.

Fast forward a bit and this weekend the boat is done. Lots of time on paint prep and finish trim work but I am pumped. Hope to go fishing this weekend and I will keep you posted.

That's awesome. The smile on your face shows your pride - and rightfully so. You did a great job.
