Looks like you are tearing through the rebuild at a good rate of knots. I have a question on the deck. When i stripped mine out, it appeared to still have the original deck on it, albeit in pretty poor shape. I found that there were strips of i think 1/2"ply that were glued onto the hulls main rails and crossmembers. These raised the height up so a sheet of decking was then at the correct height to run right out over the mahogany rail around the top of the hull which allowed for a sealed join around the top of hull. This also adds a lot of strength to the side pf the hull. The ply strips that were bonded to the rails and crossmembers also provided a strong surface for the deck screws to bite into and a good sealant area. I wondered why you have done your decks so they stop short of the top rails?

It's having the tubes bonded on,, not screwed as per norm

I will be shaping the outer edge to suit this weekend.
