That's my plan also for the deck... lol. It's nice having someone doing the same thing and sharing our ideas as we go. This forum has been a great help. And I'm sure our work will help the next guy...

Make sure you lay the CSM in opposite directions. 1 layer port to starboard and next bow to stern. Make sure you cut everything before wetting out the wood.

Ok was stuck with work for a few days and looking for a new house. Well all of the through hull fittings are installed and siliconed back in place. Ordered the through hull fittings for the genset and i put the first resin coat on the back deck. Thats a big mile stone. I will be glassing thursday afternoon. Need to drill the holes for the pickup and the exhaust for the genset.

If this below the water line do not use silicone . Use something like 4200 or 5200 .
