Rear deck look see All very exciting. I confirmed the order for the deck timer just before boarding a plane out of Gatwick and the week I got back it had arrived. I couldnt resist trimming some pieces to length and covering the rear deck. The Yellow Cedar works nicely and looks fantastic alongside the Utile.

Deck reinforcement Stem area Before I can start decking I need to add some more support structure. Here's the Stem detail to support the outer deck boards and the king plank.

Deck reinforcement hatch area Here's the hatch surround detail to support the outer deck boards.

Deck reinforcement cockpit area Here's the cockpit surround detail, port side, that I should have done ages ago...
Note all the outer deck boards have been removed so I can prepare the hull and boards for bonding.
