Deck design

I never left the house all weekend. I worked about 16 hours on the deck pattern. I thought that it would only take about two days to complete. After two days, I only have a third of it finished. Hundreds of small wood parts and not two of them are alike. Each one is made to fit individually.

The dark wood is purple heart left over from the wood duck build. The light colored wood is bass wood.

turning over the hull

Today I turned the hull over to start working on the deck. I was able to get a full day of work in and I got a lot done.
The deck will have a very complex color design so there is a lot of prep work to do before it starts to take shape.

whiskey strip

There is a reason the last strip is called a Whiskey strip. I can think of some other names but I will let your imagination fill in the blanks.

Tomorrow I will flip the hull over and start working on the deck.
