The outside boards are fitted, ready to be taken out again. There are a few little knots that need filling in with epoxy, but other than a light sanding, the boards are ready for a couple of coats of PU (external, matt finish). The footwell sides are not glued in. The next step is to prepare and paint the bilge and interior about half way up. Then the floorboards will be finished and screwed back into place. I don’t like the #8 countersunk SS screws much. I will replace these with silicon-bronze #10 with raised heads aka linsensenkkopfschrauben for those in the know!
