Also I will be making one of the deck out of two pieces of ply. Should I use a payson joint to join them?
Jacques, can I use a Payson joint with fiberglass tape here? Or should I but block with a strip of ply?

Thanks Jeff. I was afraid you'd say that. Seems like butt blocks is a common theme.

How would I determine how level the decks are. I would thinking about filling the bow and stern areas with water and marking where the water line is. What do y'all think about that?

I think JM uses butt blocks because they are simple and strong. Other forms of joints can be much harder to make correctly. Also JM works very hard to get the most out of each sheet of plywood. Scarfs and other joints yield a shorter piece of plywood and that could mess up the nesting.

A Payson joint is a simple fiberglass splice but for the R13 I specify butt blocks.
The butt blocks are hidden between the seat frames, you can't see them. In this boat, the butt blocks are also a reinforcement, a glass splice will be weaker.
Use butt blocks please.

Yes but this is for the bow and stern decks. I have one piece of wood for the stern deck, and two pieces of wood for the bow deck. I'm wondering how to join two pieces of wood for the bow deck. Jacques, should I still use a butt joint?

Also, how do I figure out how to level both decks?

This email came into our system this morning. I have forwarded to Jacques and posting it here as well: "Hi Jacques, I am building the R13 and have posted my progress on the forum. I recently asked about a payson joint. You responded but I don't think you understood the question. I have two pieces of wood I want to join to make the bow deck with, so I need to join them, and I am wondering how to go about doing that. Should I use a butt joint or can I use a payson joint? I will be putting buoyancy foam underneath the deck. Also, how can I determine the level of the decks? I am thinking about filling those areas with water and marking the water lines. Would that work or can you recommend another way." Jeff
