This weekend I got the decks glued and screwed in place. Earlier I had cut them oversized and temporarily installed them so that all the screw holes could be pre-drilled, then removed them so I could work on the seat tops. Despite all that prep work I still managed to install the decks slightly out of alignment. If you look closely at the deck right at the stem you can see that the seam is mislocated slightly to starboard. Oh well, that's the way it goes sometimes. Fortunately the deck still overhung all around and the seam will disappear when finished so the misalignment won't matter.
The Gain Machine. It came in handy once again to trim the deck flush and at the proper angle to the sheerstrake and transom.
And finally, I began working on the rubrails. A coworker donated some rough cut vertical grain Amish white oak to the project. Lovely stuff to work with, although it's got a greenish cast that I don't really care for. No problem as I was planning on painting them anyway.
