    Re: Calendar Islands Yawl 16 in Chattanooga

    Good question. Clint has some instructions in the plans which include tabs and bungees. I've not looked at that closely yet, but I will have to secure them some way. There will not be a lot of room...

    Finishing cedar floor boards

    The CIY 16 is designed with floor boards which can be raised and set on ledges around the cockpit to form a sleeping platform. I'm doing my brightwork with Minwax Helmsman's Spar Urethane.
