On the home stretch now for sure :D

I didn't feel like gluing and taping yesterday, so I fiddled some more with the deck frames then got all of the deck sections dry fit.

Nice 8)

Will you be putting a doubler on either side of the fuel fill cutout in that one deck support stringer?

Thanks yall. John, the hatches are Jim Black, from www.greatlakesskipper.com

KS, yes, I'm going to double that up. I was thinking I'd use plywood for that.

About to head out with some neighbors and dig a few bushels of oysters. Oyster season opened Oct.1 and we're going to celebrate with a big roast tonight :D
