Various Deck Tasks: Caprail, Coaming Lockers

As the saying goes, "boats don't build themselves"...

This weekend sees work on the caprail and the cockpit coaming.

The caprail will be the PlasTeak stuff. I am starting out with the small pieces near the bowsprit, to get a feel for how to work with this stuff (how it cuts, routes,  bends, etc.). Then work my way back.

Also on the agenda is the cockpit coaming locker. I have had this locker glassed in and access openings cut for some time now, covered with plastic to keep the weather out. I glued in the flanges for the openings a couple days ago. Today I hope to see the insides painted more permanent (yet still temporary) coverings installed, with weather stripping.
