Mounting Deck Board

The last piece of the deck is now mounted...

The forward deck board is in place.

A piece of deck ply is "glued" to the teak board.

This creates an "overlap" to the large deck pieces.

The gap is prepared with pre-drilling holes, tape to pick up glue and through deck fittings to ensure position.

Glued, fastened and clamped!

The old and the new piece. The screw holes are closed with teak plugs 1/2 inch.
