Well, deck supports, really. Yesterday we arrived home from an afternoon spent working with friends in the Gabriola Commons garden, and discovered that Trevor had built the deck supports over the forward berth.

From above. Hard to see in the picture,  but essentially there are boards going from one side of the boat to the other (the deck support beams), crossed by pieces going between the bulkheads (the deck stringers). The spaces between deck stringers are filled in with packing pieces. The wood is beautiful Douglas fir. All will be glued with expoxy, and screwed with bronze screws. 

Looking forward from inside the chart room. This looks mostly like a picture of a much-used clamp collection and is Much Less Exciting than the actual sight.
