Before we glue the covering board in place with the 12 minute epoxy glue, gather up the weights (cans of food) used on the transom glue up. They will be used along with the masking tape when you glue the covering boards to the sub decking.

Now mix a small batch of 12 minute epoxy resin and coat the sub decking in were the covering board was marked in. Starting at the bow making sure that the cover board in on the center line and its back edge on the 4 1/4 mark, tape in position with masking tape. Then as before proceed down the side of the deck taping in position every 2 or 3 inches, only this time cleaning any excess glue coming out the edge of the covering board. Also place weights on the inside edge of the covering board as you go down the side of the deck. This will insure that you have a tight joint on the cover board to the sub decking.

The second cover board is done in the same manor as the first board, with the exception of making sure that you have a good joint between the two covering boards at the bow. For a good joint it might be necessary to block sand the butting edge of the covering board.
