Looks like a nice flat surface with lots of glue area for the sole to sit on. What's next for you? Chase tubes?

That's several hundred feet of cleats, isn't it? Very neat work, good thing you took pictures!

Lord yes it is. Thanks Pee Wee.

I removed the dams this morning. It was a success, the tops are filled nice and level.

In order to strike a line forward of what I've done I had to modify the end of my level.
Small piece of G10 mounted to the underside of my level.
The single screw allows me to match the curvature of the hull well enough to get this done.
If you do this note: You need to drill your hole off center of the extruded aluminum.
The extrusion has a "T" shape in the center for strength.

The application:

The result:

I thought about the next step, after this, over the week end. I think I'm going to cut and fit a temporary floor next.
I haven't decided which way to finish the boat yet. This will allow me to play with ideas. That's all for now.
I hope everyone is having a good Monday. :)

Neat and clean like always.
Putting the deck down will change things a bunch and let to see stuff a little different. Good move dropping it in there for planning.
