Hi Mike

I did read your post and liked how you had used the fome as a core and not ply did this work? Your old post finished before the project had, do you have any more photos of how it looked as you where getting closer to the finish? What did you use as the deck in the end?

I am sticking with ply but I am now going to go for 18mm x 3. my hope is that the extra thickness will make up for any construction issues? I got a sheet of 6mm last night and made up a template to use for cutting the 18mm sheets. And have made up a template for the top of the new bow locker. I am guessing that was the easy way to do this.

You didn't use a chainsaw, you used a shot gun!
