Vaka cockpit

6 hours of work in the last two weekends to make the cockpit the vaka. Our plywood sheets are 2.5 meters long, and the hull is 6 meters long, so using one sheet for the deck forward and another for the deck aft, a remaining space about 1 meter long must be filled.
The first picture shows all the four butt blocks (2 cm thick) already glued and screwed to the two esisting deck panels.

while the next one shows the two fillers glued and screwed as well. Those butt blocks needed quite some work since their shape is a bit tricky.

Next time we'll cut the whole cockpit and round the hull to deck joint.

Total work time to date: 411 hours
