I think it would look nice. But ultimately your choice. You’re doing great work!The tween deck beams cleaned up, installed and clear coated.

Separating, sanding prepping main deck beams. These are the "single" beams, clear coated on the tops and sides, need to flip and do the bottoms.

I separated all the parts from the sprues. These are grouped for the pre install assembly groups, waiting to be cleaned up.

I sanded the outer radius on the mini disk sander. This allowed me to remove the bevel from that side.

Then, laying it on the bench on a sandpaper disk to help hold it steady, sanded the inside curve to remove the little ridge and spru bits. By holding the stick with PSA paper on it parallel to the bench, it removed the bevel from that side so it is now square.

Question - I have to assume that the bilge deck beams and the tween deck beams both had deck planking on them. I've been wondering if it would be appropriate to lay some deck planks on them (partially covering the beams) , similar to the partially covered main deck? Perhaps decking the port side half?

I will need to make that decision now, as it would be impossible to do after the main deck beams go in. I do have some pear strips I could run through the thickness sander to thin down a bit for that purpose.
