November 24, 2010

We put in the deck beams today, with the exception of the one that is crooked at the back... As there is a bit of repair needed at that location.

The beams are pretty close to fair as they sit, the forward two are wedged partially under the sides of the deck, and will require a bit of shimming to bring them up to the line of the rest of the deck.

The work we are doing over the tank room is going back together with #1 treated kiln dried deck boards, which we have ripped the radius off each side allowing for a tighter fit. The original decking was 1 1/8th red fir, the salt treated boards are southern yellow pine. On top of that, we will epoxy a layer of 1/2 inch marine grade plywood, staggering the seams. Once that is down, we will fiberglass two layers of 1708 biaxial glass cloth over the top... then fair it smooth and prime for paint.
