I went through a lot of grief with my Wood Duck 10 stripped deck, that could have been avoided if I had read "progress on wood duck 12" posted 2/27/10. If you are new to boat building, this is a must read - especially later in the responses. It's too bad this post didn't make specific mention of deck problems: if it had, I would have read it, and saved myself.
My otherwise beautiful deck is marred because I needed to plane off much more wood on the shear strip than I wanted. Following the manual about removing deck forms, etc. really hurt my effort. The advice in the above-mentioned post could save you from a similar fate! If only I had read it before my problems began.
