9. Your pics show the top of the deck beams level with the top of the hull. Has anyone set the beams below the top of the hull so the sub deck is level with the edge of the hull ? This question arises because if the beams are set down a 1/16 or 1/32 then the first deck plank covers the edge of the fibreglass hull; otherwise if the beams are level with the hull then the edge of the sub deck is exposed after planking.
10. Has anyone used balsa for the sub deck? There is an EC 12 build site that uses 1/16 balsa for the deck. http://www.ec12.info/index.htm
9. If you paint the hull it will cover the edge of the sub deck.
10. If you use balsa for the sub deck it would have be sealed an fiber glassed.
