Forward Deck.Tramp, Supports, Sheer Stripe, Mast Paint

This is the beam at the aft end of the cockpit. Th section in the center is where the swim ladder will attach.
Visible at this end of beam is the slot that will receive the trampoline bolt rope.This is a piece of 1/2" PVC pipe that we glassed into the bottom corner of the beam and after fairing cut this slot. This technique has worked well for us on other projects.

 Here you can see the rail attached to the aft inboard end of hull to attach the trampoline. The blue stripe is just tape to layout the bolt holes on. Also visible is one of the mooring cleats.

The owner of this boat decided to go with a slatted teak deck instead of a trampoline.
Below we have fitted the deck to the fwd end of boat.
This photo shows the bottom side of the cockpit.We have cut pieces of PVC pipe to fabricate wire conduits between the two hulls and the motor. We will glue a matching stub of pipe to each hull aligned with the pipes on the cockpit and  connect the two with a piece of hose clamped on.

We have painted a blue sheer stripe on the hulls. I think that this is going to look very sharp.
