Before continuing with the mahogany deck planking a center line must be drawn the entire length of the hull from the stem post to the transom on the sub decking for reference. This is so that the mahogany covering boards (shears) and the King Plank location lines can be drawn. Off both sides of the center line draw parallel lines 3/8 from the center line. This will be the location for the mahogany King Plank.

The rear hatch can now be cut free from its tacked glued wedges in the frame work of the hull with a Xacto knife. Block sand the sides of the hatch frame smooth as well as the hatch where it was tacked glued in place.

Measure back form the point of the stem post 1 1/4 place a mark on the center line of the hull. This will be the location of the back edge of the mahogany covering boards where they butt joint on the center line of the deck.
