Spent an hour or so finishing the bilge paint under the aft deck and also put a coat on the bottom of the ply that will be the aft deck. When all that is dry, we’ll be ready to put the aft deck permanently in place.

I’ve been a little worried about needing access under it for systems installation, but with the ventilation slots cut in the frames, there’s a good bit of room to fish wires under there… I think it will do ok.

Most power/fuel runs can actually go through the side lockers instead of under the deck, thus won’t be an issue.

Time = 1 hour
