    Good - you have to grease the skids.

    You guys just don't realise the wonderful resources at your disposal... It's a lot different here in darkest Africa!

    I really hate to ask a dumb question - but if you know, what exactly is that brown material under the deck?
    Some kind of heavy resin layer on top of fiberglass mat? The more I look at it - the less I realize I really know.

    Its thickened resin. I couldn't tell you why they did it that way though. It's about a quarter inch thick. I don't know if they were trying to save money by using a thinner core or what. Thick resin is a lot weaker than if they had used a thicker core. My guess is cost. I also find it odd that they used dynel too?

    Thanks Moondance. Maybe the thinking was it would not rot, but that seems in contrast to using any plywood at all. Was the plywood under the deck about 1/4"? You're doing great work-

    Yes the plywood was about 1/4".

    Glad to see this project moving along nicely. I am new here but went back to the beginning and read all of you thread here. Feels good saving or improving an old boat.

    Ok... so besides working on the level of that private stock previously advertised... what is your next step with the deck? What is your plan for finishing and anti-slip method?

    How many layers of CSM did you put down?

    The deck has 2 layers of 1.5 oz.. CSM sandwiching 1 layer of 1708. Next step is fairing and painting using Total Boat products Total Fair, Topside Primer, Total Tread, and Wet Edge topside paint. I guess I should of left the plywood out until I was done documenting the other steps first. Not to worry though they are coming!

    Ok, so you got a fair thickness of laminate... there's just no getting away from fairing though is there!? It is a seriously laborious job and mostly manual sanding with long boards. At least I know now that I am not the only one doing this ;)

    Fairing wont be to bad for me in that area as most of it will be covered up by non-skid. Mainly just to get any major low spots taken care of.

    Noted, but don't underestimate the work required to do fairing nicely!

    I have been watching a YouTube series called "Boat Bros" The videos are kinda boring but the amount of informative info is great.

    I screwed up the name of the You Tube video this morning... (It was early) The name is Sail Bros... These guys are restoring a large older sailboat over years and have documented it. Like I said a lot of good info.
