The weather all weekend was beautiful. Near 70 degrees so I took some time to get some tasks finished up.
This will be a long post, so bear with me.
First, I hung the deck up so that I could get a the seats and do some serious sanding on them. The supporting cross bar is a trick I learned from bcbimmer on the infamous #70 thread.

Anyway, the glue down went very well (other than the drips). The fir pieces fit exactly in place and added extra meat for the glue.
You can see the screws holding the deck down. I've not used a lot of screws in this build.
I drilled a hole for the nav light in the bow. It's just behind the spine, which is a bit further back than I wanted it, but it will be fine.
