After getting the final fifteen thousand little details of the deck framing and bracing done, the hatch interiors and framing are done, painted, oiled, glued, screwed and ready to cover up forever. Now for some more fun: spiling the strange-shaped deck boards and cutting up lots of expensive plywood.
In the foreground of the first picture is the spilling board for the foredeck. Hard to decipher but it contains all the points needed to make (in theory) a perfect deck.
Ducks in a row, lining up all the points. Then, after double-checking the angles of each cut, I saw out the board and, hoping against hope, take it over to the boat and try to make it fit.
