Got the basic points down, now to the saw...

Need to cut in half at an angle for two topsides of the casting deck. Then lay parts on top to mark the hull shape and cut.

Was able to cut ply. Flipped over ply so straight edges butted up to each other. Centered ply and ran a marker under the ply along the rub rail. Then flipped cut ply, flipped again..

Found this very nice layout on a Cracker Larry FS18 build.

Two hatches and lots of foredeck.... Very clean...

Looking good Capt UB. First Mate seems to approve too, doing her impression of the girl on the bow of the Titanic. "I'M FLYING!!"
"that it isn't just an ordinary sort of boat. Sometimes it's a Boat, and sometimes it's more of an Accident. It all depends." "Depends on what?" "On whether I'm on the top of it or underneath it."

I forgot I bought a tan (sand) color monstaliner kit. I was for the FS14, but never used it. Thinking this would be a good coating for the cockpit deck, not sure how or what I going to do to the aft/fore deck. Some short of non-skid. Still need to fair the deck or the seams and cloth will show.
