More Inside Carpentry... a satisfying step...
A nice piece of meranti was added to the top of the unfinished floatation chamber... I didn't want the decking to oil-can, plus, I wanted a good grounding area for the eventual cleats.
A farmer friend of mine gave me a 100 + year old Scythe handle to be used as a poor man's center console... Thankfully the boat is extremely well balanced in our wavy bay here in Rhode Island, i.e. the pilot stands at the pivot point. Nonetheless, the scythe adds a strong sense of security as I drive the boat standing up.
Next to last pic is of the hull-throughs and finally the whole boat prior to decking.
