Great description and will be very helpful as I work through my model (when it finally arrives). Thanks.For the platform I started with a cardboard cutout roughly the dimensions of the platform (aft in this case) then kept scissoring away here and there until I got a pretty good tight fit with where the platform will fit in. On top of this cutout will be wood strips glued edge on with of course simulated caulking in between and iron nails when finished.

Hi,I have some tipsAfter conditioning the wood I sanded again with 230 grit then stained with Minwax golden oak. I'll do the simulated tree nails then a second coat of stain.
I have a problem. I marked out the waterline and for the life of me I can't get masking tape to stick so I can get a nice crisp line for the white paint below the waterline. I've tried two different types and nothing will stick. Anybody have an idea on what I can use?

Yep, that makes sense. Thank you Larsa!Hi,I have some tips
You must have a "bottomcolor"(varnisch or groundpaint),then the masking tape and then paint the "bottomcolor against the masking tape on that side you want a nice edge,let dry,paint your color and remove the tape at once after that
Hope you understand my English//Lasse
I think beachwood for the planking would look fantastic.After reviewing and thinking about this i think i am going to spile the planks using BEECH and 1/16inch X 3/8 inch, has been a long time since i did a POB build will get to it soon out of a lot of materials virus take ove. THANKS Don
