After much thought and a few sleepless nights I decided to dye the deck on my Mill Creek. I was very nervous, as I did not like the idea of a painted deck if I messed up. I used Lockwood's water soluble aniline dye for the deck and hatches. The hardest part was not getting any glue on the deck while attaching it. I used a foam brush to put on two coats of very diluted dye to slowly build up the color and to raise the grain. I then attached the deck and applied the remaining two coats. I won't know until the glass goes on but it looks like it will be very nice.
