Re: Trouble with the deck
Posted by Mac on Apr 25, 2007
I'm assuming you are building a Chesapeake model?
If so, there is an extreme bend in the foredeck, and lower grade plywood (especially as thick as 1/4 inch) will give you trouble.
I'd always be concerned about the deck to hull joint opening up down the road.
My advice would be to try again once you locate the BS1088 grade 4mm required. The deck is probably the worst place to try anything else.
Best of luck
