Deck work progress

June 27, 2022
The previously removed white beech deck planks are being machined on all faces before being cut in half as shown. These 30 mm thick planks will form the top deck layer over the two layers of plywood. Each layer is bonded to the layer below and the deck beams.
In the immediate foreground is the first layer of plywood epoxied and screwed to a deck beam. Further along is the second layer of plywood affixed over the first. The glossy section past that is coated with its layer of fibreglass and epoxy. All this work has to be achieved in mid winter while keeping all components dry.
Foredeck finished with its two layers of plywood and fibreglass.
Another view of the foredeck shows the outer edge of the plywood where the margin boards will be installed prior to laying the white beech deck planking.
