    Oh my I LOVE the integrated sub deck! Will that be recurring with newer hulls in the future?

    Thanks!

    I’ve asked that question when we first started expanding our selections in this group. I don’t think we got a large sampling of response, but as I recall most preferred to install that themselves.

    We did not make this mold, but I like the final product. It adds a bit of work and materials, but seems worth it. The argument against it was that it limits access to installing gear.

    honestly, with the number of boats that I have seen with sub decks coming delaminated from the glass over the years.... I think it is a great addition, and if one doesn't want it.... an oscillating tool will make quick work of adding access points as needed.

    As long as you keep in mind where the barbette's need to be and keep the cross pieces nice and narrow like those ones are. I don't see where gear placement is going to possibly be an issue for the vast majority.

    Do you have a template for the deck inset. With a template Mark could lazer cut the deck, with planking

    If he doesn't have a template, I'll make one when you get your hull.

    I do not. These molds came with a ton of other stuff we haven’t even gotten through prepping for production yet.
