RE: Whiskey plank

I'd go for a single malt Scotch, before AND after!!!

Looks good; always wanted to do a Stripped deck (but I'm afraid!).

Look forward to completion pics...


RE: Whiskey plank

I think before and and after is good advice. Those little strips are annoying. I've been removing a bit of the cove lip on the underside in order to fit them in. I've also decided to do 2 needles butted together. This seems easier that a long double tapered piece.

Next question....filet the seam between the plywood apron and the stripped deck on the underside? I may do this to strengthen it up a bit. Any comments?

Note to self...next time rtfm. There's a good description of the whiskey plank on page 92-93 of 'The Strip-Built Sea Kayak'
