Cover Board Templates

The past week on the boat has been small items that dont show much progress. I counter-sunk the sub-deck screws. Did some filling of low spots under the sub-deck. Trimmed the sub deck around the cockpits, motor well and outside edge of the boat.
Now I am planning ahead for the next step, the cover boards. The cover boards will be 3/8" thick mahogany which is cut to cover the outside edge of the boat. The trick is to use as few pieces as possible so there are as few joints as possible. I made some templates out of 1/4" plywood I had left over. These template boards are 10" wide, I think I will make the real ones out of 12" wide material and I believe I will be able to have one less joint using the wider material. Once the real cover boards are fit the inside edges are trimmed to a nice radius similar to the outside edge of the boat.

I think I'll go ahead and order the material for the cover boards tuesday, that should mean it will be ready by weds.
