I was going to put Frame D on tonight, but ran out of screws. I have question on the deck. I would like to finish the top of the deck so I can epoxy and varnish it. The plans call for 1 layer of biaxial tape at the seams. If I place biaxial on the top of the deck, won't this show through the epoxy. Is there a way I can use woven so the weave can disappear?

I deleted my previous answer, sorry.

That edge "problem" exists on all our boats along the chines, transom, bow etc.
In some cases like this one, we specify tape over the deck to side seam.
If you use non-skid on the deck, there will be no problem on that side, the non-skid hides that small edge.
Along the hull side, keep in mind that the edge is just under the rubrail and will be barely visible anyway.
I would still fair with putty and sand it but not worry too much about it because the shadow of the rubrail will hide it.
If you want it mirror perfect, there is only one solution: fair and sand.

I was gonna answer this is a JM question, but he beat me to it!

Skip the biax tape.

Is there a coaming or rubrail?

How will you finish the ply edges?

My brother ran rubrails on outside and then we had some unevenness with the thickened epoxy and he opted to paint the rail.

To skip the tape is also a possibility. Those boats are very strong with the deck epoxied on the rubrail and an inwale. The inwale is a batten that you add along the sheer, inside. You glue the deck to it.

The tricky bit will be hiding the ply edge. The ideal is is the deck sits down inside the inwhale and rubrail. Of course, this creates a void for ingress...

So, on the windward 15, we wrapped the deck and rubrail with glass and painted the edges black to deal with variations in the void fill. It looks super and I have posted it before, so must refrain. The deck itself is varnished.

Thanks for the replies. I finally got frame D placed and will be putting E up tonight. I also received my plywood today. The curb side delivery was tough when I had to open the box at the curb and carry each piece by myself up a hill and into the garage. Finally, I am ready to start cutting some plywood.

No issues with the plywood. No issues with delivery.

What is the point of placing the stringers on now if I'm going to remove all of the frames when it's flipped?
