Small project... finish the duckboard

 There was a piece of the bridge deck extending out part way. I wanted something to hide my steering gear under so instead of chopping off, I added to it.


Everything is fastened together here and taped underneath.

   The first step was taping the triangle panel nearest you, to the deck at bottom of photo, matching it's angle! Then I brought it down to fasten to th erest. The preserves the fair camber. The strips of foam laying about were glued on either side of the trimmed edge as seen next photo
   Now glue another strip on the facing edge and...
  Sand the foam edge smooth and tape the lot, making it heavy on the facing side as it will get bumped around by the dinghy.
   a better look
