Another push, another session, and I’ve got the port forward deck finished. Its pleasing to have put some decent shape into the bows all the way up to the stem heads. I’m on the lookout for some really nice hardwood to finish these off but there’s no rush and it’s a job that can be done anytime if I fancy something different to tackle. For now I can say that all four single skin decks fore and aft are finished for now, so what’s next? I think it’s the tumble homes. These are the long narrow tapered panels that form the lower part of the cabin roof sides and are fixed to the angles at the tops of the bulkheads. There is plenty of filleting work left to do inside the hulls but my focus for the summer is to try and get the hulls enclosed so that I can work inside the boat when the weather turns cold again. In addition there is a lot of motivation to be gained from adding some more decent sized bits of ply that will change the hull shapes again.
