Trying to finish buoyancy compartment covers. The 6mm ply is running low so checked what was available on the deck ply sheets once the fore and aft material is removed. Should be fine. Brilliant the front and back use exactly 2 sheets and they conform very easily. There is still considerable shaping to the frames to receive the deck skin as well as internal work (console, keel plate, shroud and fore-stay anchoring, spinnaker chute...). The rudder stock thrust bearing block was originally to be mounted permanently. Now it will be bolted from below with sealant all around to allow quicker access to the upper and lower bearings.
