« Part 7: Paint and Flipping Part 8 of Key Largo Carolina Dory Build series Part 9: Foam and Floor »

The horizontal framing was done with 2×4s and the vertical frames were made with 2×3s. everything was glued and screwed into the framing ribs of the boat. there will be a walkway around the outside of the pilot house and the casting deck is raising up 1/2 inch each frame brace going forward so all water will run back.

next the house was skinned with 1/2 inch plywood. the top has a 1” taper from center to sides.
