MELONSEED 13'4" - Built by Etienne Muller 2020 - Designed by Selway Fisher

I was going to use yellow cedar for the floorboards, but it is rather heavy compared to red cedar, so I went with the red cedar. The floorboards have been rough finished. I tried them in situ to see how they will look. I left a gap in the middle floorboard behind the CB case so that I can get the base of a hand pump down onto the keel. I will finish the floorboards with oil. It will be a lot less slippery than shiny wet varnish, and easier to touch up scuff marks later.
