hull and deck joins

How do both ply decks and one piece moulded deck units get bonded to the hull and stiffners?? Do they seal a small boatbuilder in the bottom for life?? How can the quality below be seen or guaranteed??

Thanks

Only in Terry Pratchet books, where there's a little gymnast in every engine cylinder as well, pushing up and down!

There are different methods,usually hatches and storage spaces are used to access internal areas form outside in the building process,this is one of the reasons why RIBS are so full of hatches!

Have a look at the Carson 600 thread to see how we do it We are quite happy to let our customers see exactly what is under the deck, this is not the case with a lot of builders

I can't speak for other makes but my Humber has longits of mahogany about 50mm wide for the length of the hull. CSM is laid onto these and the deck laid down and screwed through into the mahogany to compress the join. The deck is then laminated up over the whole of the boat. The pic will give you an idea of it.
