Okay 2 questions:
1. How tight should the puzzle joints be? They are snug a bit large with a dry fit. I almost think I'll need to tap with a rubber mallet in the current state. Afraid that the plywood edges may fray and mar the finish if I force it.
2. The Hull panel pieces are different tones. Will this still be the case with a bright finish? Not sure I would like the finish if it stays different and would then consider painting or staining the hull. (The deck will be stripped)
