With the hull sides, bottom and transom block sanded smooth, the installation of the mahogany covering boards and inlays are next.

The first covering board will be spotted on the deck at the bow with its back or inside on the 4 1/4" mark on the center line of the hull and the splice joint on the center line. Tape the covering board in place with masking tape every two or three inches as you place it going down the side of the deck.

The covering board will run down the side of the deck with its inside edge even with the cockpit opening (inside shear edge). The covering board will continue toward the transom but will not reach the transom. The covering boards are cut over sized so that they will be over hanging the mahogany side planking of the hull.

Once the covering board is taped in place, mark the inside edge of the covering boards location with a sharp pencil. Now remove the masking tape and the cover board from the deck.
