Well, i've done a little work on the deck since my last update BigGrin
I sanded the deck, applied a couple of coats of Danish oil, left to thoroughly dry, sanded the deck again and finally gave it a third coat of the oil.

I am absolutely loving the colour Love Drool Love

More to follow soon...hopefully BigGrin

The next part of the build entails fitting all the supports for the main deck. The whole of the main deck was then glued in place. I had some issues with lining up the posts on the ribs to the slots in the deck, but easily remedied with some sash clamps. Here are the pictures of my progress to date.

BigGrin Thanks Mark, she’s an enjoyable build ThumpUp Fact is there’s not many 4-deckers out there.

BigGrin Thanks for your support, guys, much appreciated ThumpUp
Just a small update today, as i am busy planking the upper deck. Due to the size of this ship, that's a loooong process, but actually, quite relaxing BigGrin
Once complete i will again seal with the Danish Oil and upload some photos.

Cheers
Gray
