Hi all,
Finally got my first shipment and getting started on my first pack. Already a question Confused Confused I cut my deck planks to 65mm in length as directed. When I lay them out on the deck they don't look the same as in the pic in the directions. The planks don't come nearly as close to the end of my deck as shown in the directions when I lay them out. Is this a concern. Probably a dumb question, but I don't want to get off on the wrong foot.

Hi Den

Take a look at the official build you will see that my planks fall short like yours. Its not a problem as you add more planks as you add the decks all will look uniform.

Shipment 1 complete!. Guess I'll just sit around now and stare at it until the next one arrives BigGrin BigGrin . Question, On the forward mast hole, the beam underneath is seen within the hole as you can see by the pic. Does that need to be sanded out so the hole is completely round?
