You made the whole cover board puzzle look way too easy, nice work.

Thanks guys.
And yes Jim, I think the bond is is good - the vacuum even pulls the epoxy through the thin veneer that I’m using, in some areas.

Love it! Very classic look. I like the way you fit the king plank into the cover boards.

Thomas, you've been doing a nice job with color on your boat! Dare I ask what the stain is that you used on the cover boards/king plank?

I also like the idea of staining those parts before you do the rest of the decking. Reduces the amount of masking off you need to do.

Barry,
I have used the same type of stain as on the rest of the hull, so the Metal Complex water soluble dyes from WD Lockwood. On the hull I have used the Honduras Brown Mahogany (MCW23) and on the cover boards / king plank I have used the Dark Brown (MCW355). For both colors I have used 30g dye per Liter of water.

Yes, I ran into this issue when veneering my interior. I tried applying a thin layer of epoxy and letting it cure, but this really can only work on smaller pieces if you can keep them flat during the cure. The veneer I had came in rolls and when I tried this on a larger piece, well, lets just say I added a bit to the landfill.

Beautiful looking boat by the way. Excellent work.

Thanks Carl.
Even though the epoxy pulls through a bit, it hasn’t really been an issue for me. My veneer is 2.5mm by the way, not as thin as the roll version that you have used (which over here is 0.6mm I think). I use a peel ply when I do the vacuum bagging, so once I sand off the thin layer of epoxy on the surface, you can’t really see that it has been pulled through at all. Seems like it only fills up the pores in the wood, which would be tiny, dark spots anyway. I was afraid that I might have an issue with my water soluble dye having trouble penetrating into the wood and making the coloring uneven, but as long as I make sure the surface is sanded down to bare wood, it has worked well so far.

wow, thats going to look very classy, what color are you going to put on the deck boards and which caulk or epoxy color for in between deck boards?

I really enjoyed putting the deck on.

Thanks Steve.
I’ll go for the same color as the sides on the deck boards. I’m planning to “cheat” a bit and just paint on the chaulk lines (so just go for a few wide boards and make sure the seams are under the painted stripes). Will use 50mm boards with 6mm stripes (matching the masking tape widths).

The deck “planks” are on and sanded. Have used vacuum bagging as usual, and I’m happy with the results - almost guaranteed no voids. Next is staining.

Looking sharp! Good use for the vacuum bagging technique.
