I took measurements every 2 ft and transferred the measurements to the opposite side for placing the batten. Clamped the batten in place and scribed another line. This side was cut to match. The inside was done in the same manor. At the front I left a bit more wood near the deck in case I change my mind and want a narrower forward section under the deck, I might be bumping my head reaching for stuff up there.
With the combing now installed, this now ends major construction on this Pathfinder. The small parts and flooring is next but the flooring is already cut and fitted. Up next... Mast supports, floor drains, floor supports, and cleat mounts. Once all that is done I can start final finish work on the inside hull which means lots of sanding and epoxy work before painting... I just said painting.... Wow.. I'm far enough along in this project to utter those words in the same sentence as next.
