A temporary frame to support the deck was assembled out of two-by-fours, which were covered with plastic. The shear was planed,
using a batten to check the angle.
The first layer of 1/4" plywood was cut to shape, and glued and screwed to the
shear and bulkheads. Strips of 1/2" plywood were temporarilly screwed down to the deck at the shear, to keep the 1/4"
plywood from getting ripples. Two more layers of 1/4" plywood were then laminated onto the foredeck.
The deck and cockpit sole were sheathed with Zynole Polyester cloth and epoxy, and a bit of work was done on the motorwell
After moving the big boat, this was a piece of cake.
First, we jacked up the boat on blocks, and then pushed the trailer
partly under the boat. Then the boat was winched onto the trailer as the trailer was being pushed back.
After the boat
was on the trailer, the bunks and rollers were adjusted. It was then ready for the road.
