Saw you up on the foredeck of your boat the other day Dell... I glance over every time I head down I-5.

Whens the next outing?

I'm in the process of sealing the deck to hull joint. So far, I've pulled the old T-track/toerail and replaced all the fasteners and have added some glass filled polyester.
Then I'll be glassing over the whole edge with epoxy/glass once I get it all faired in.

I've also pulled all the safety stanchions so I had to start using a harness attached to the main halyard to keep from falling 10' to the rocks.

I've been debating whether to add a water board before installing a new track to help keep the water out from under the track.

And then I'll paint the whole hull yellow and rename her 'Ugly Duckling'.

So Question:

What are you fasting your toe rail again with?...Those bolts your glassing over don't they do double duty as hull to deck joint fasteners and tow rail fasteners?

Yeah! They useta hold the T-track/toerail but it's all rotten so I pulled the toerail and put all new fasteners back in to secure the deck to the hull. I used oversized washers because the deck is only 1/4" thick at the overlap and I didn't want to split/crack the decks glass.

After it's glassed over I will put on a new T-track and stagger in additional holes between the old ones and move them inboard about 1/2". The old holes were so close to the inner hull that the washers and nuts were hard to get on. The overlap is about 3" wide.
