Just had a full read through, some build eh ! You've done a lovely job in remedying the mistakes made before you started. Decking is as the others have rightly said is brilliant. Looking fwd to the upper sections ! Good luck .
Shaping the planks to fit the ever narrowing spaces (scharf joints I think their called ) is a very slow job (and each one is a different shape) but it is surprisingly satisfying when they finally fit.
Finally finished the planking of the hull, luckily the top half is black so I can hide the bad bits under the paint, I'm really pleased with the bottom half though which is good since I will just be varnishing that and leaving the wood to show.
I must admit its turned out far better than I hoped it would.
