Back to the boat today to work on that clamp again. I tried using the electric planer but no joy as it was too big to fit so it was the old school way with hammer and chisel. After we got it close, we went at it with the sander.

Notice the fitment of the new deck beams?

You can see the joins.

After we got it pretty close, it was time to make the last of that section's deck beams and fit them.

Now I have to order some fasteners and bolt that side together after measuring the spacing between the house bolts. I wouldn't want to finish everything up and find the house won't bolt up. I'm thinking of through bolting the inside ends as well instead of using screws.

I'm just wondering whether to glue the joints too. If I did, it'd be tough for the next person to replace them.

Will gluing the joins add more strength? If so I say glue them.

I dunno, maybe less ability to flex and work loose.

It's Black Locust. What's wrong with the grain orientation and on what pieces? Edumacate a newbie here....

some of that is running pretty much in the wrong direction for maximum strength.

Those are saw marks, Wolf Tree.

Looks good, Charlie.

I'm going back with Marine ply, heavily treated with CPES and probably Sanitred over the top and edges to seal it all. I'm gonna CPES the bottom of the bulwarks and then run a seal of Sanitred/a bead of LRB/Sanitred over that on the joint of the deck and bulwarks. I figure nothings more flexible than rubber. It'll be a small 1/4" bead. I haven't decided what to do at the house deck joint yet. Maybe a piece of beaded butyl tape but that would require me routed a small channel for the bead to sit in.

I don't want any water getting at the ply edges at all.

Ah, I see what he saw. Yes those are bandsaw marks.
