Re: Strip: Strip Nikumi Progress

Make sense now, no need to re-deck a flat area.
So coaming is for boats and a comb is a tool I need less and less each year.

: Hi Ian,
: It's because the rear deck is flat, just like the SOF version. With
: the rear deck flat there is no recess that would be provided
: from deck curvature so I didn't install it. What I did was make
: the recess end at the side of the combing right at the Curly
: Maple accent strips. The front recess will make the top of the
: combing level with the deck ridge and provide a flat surface to
: build the combing off of.
: Oh yea questions are always OK.
