46 Gar Wood Ensign Installing Aft Deck Planks 02 10 2015

John has installed the original covering boards, has rough-fit, fastened most of the foredeck planks temporarily, and is now focusing on installing the aft deck planking.
Here he is fastening the center plank, one that is devoid of seams, bedded in 3M5200. The balance of these planks have been sanded-in to fit. John will next fabricate the seams by running them through a fixed-place router before he screws them in place, also bedded in 3M5200.
Bleaching and staining are next, followed by building coats of Pettit High-Build varnish.
