Finishing Deck Supports

After everything is assembled the deck supports are sanded to level.

The rims are sanded down to the top plank. The ribs are removed and were cut back 1/8 of an inch so they will fit again later.

The deck supports are also sanded down to level. The entire support structure is now ready for the deck.

Filled leveled and mounted is also the mast support. Some epoxy filling was needed on the bow to level the center line. The black marks show a 7 inch wide section where the deck will be flat.
