The bulkheads at the fore and aft covered decks were solid as to keep it buoyant and dry in the "pond boat" mode, so these were trimmed with openings to better represent the original framing members. These openings at the bow allowed for the halyards to pass through the deck as in the original. All running lines on the model work correctly. The other bulkheads were trimmed skinny as well as the main keel.
The paint, as on my original boat, is Benjamin Moore Porch Paint green and white and Pettit anti fouling copper paint below the water line.
