OQ,
I'm using oak and plan on just using a little bit of 4200 to hold it in place. Easy to replace.

What does the interior look like now?
The hull bottom on the inside looks like someone put tape and glass on stuff and is lightly sanded. Inside sides looks like 12oz glass was used to cover it and about 2/3 of one side is rough sanded down to where the sole will meet. Right now my thoughts are to sand after sole is taped in, the ribs taped on and then finish sand everything. Once I get that far I will know how I will finish it, I hope! 8O

To bad you can't just stain that trim piece. It will take a lot of abuse being on the edge.

Thinking my instrument dash will be light colored stained to show it is wood. I am glad I am not at that point of deciding what to do about finishing the interior of my build....Good luck with that! :wink:
Why not use aluminum or stainless trim on those spots? no worries about abuse that way

I did look into other trims. I have used the oak before, just small SS screws with finish washers to hold in place.
I'm not liking the direction I went on the interior. I will finish as is and not repeat using vinyl flooring on the LM18.

I'm still happy with how she looks and can't wait to get out on the water in her.

Before you commit to using that "L" trim check how it bends to follow curves- I bet it doesn't want to bend much at all. If you liked the look you would get it easier by using two flat pieces and gluing them together after they've been bent.

I've enjoyed watching you put things together, figuring it out as you go.

That is what I like too Pee Wee. The builders that say I have a problem here and then show how they got past it really makes it easier when I get to one of those places in my build.

I decided to go for the work boat finish.

Primed the inside of the hull this morning and will paint later today.

Vinyl is down on fore deck and aft deck, will cover front of both and sole with vinyl Sunday.

Sunday after vinyl is down will do a second coat of paint inside.

If weather holds, will sand the outside of the hull and put down another coat of paint there too.
