Finishing the deck - correct order

Recommended Posts

Happy Holidays to all,


As a newbie who is resurrecting an old AL Swift kit I have come to the point at which the deck is complete and much of the deck furniture and cabins are ready to go.


The question is whether to apply finish to the deck first and then attach the cabins, furniture and fittings or vice versa.  I think I will get the best results from the finish if it is applied first.  I am concerned it will then be difficult to glue anything to the finished surface.  I am planning to use a  Rub On Satin Poly but might go with a Tung Oil.


Just wondering how the more experienced builders approach this portion of the build.


Thanks for all the great advice.
