We were asked to assist with this sailing catamaran that had been extended on the sterns with some machined Eva decking pads to finish the job off. This work consisted of making templates of the pads and layout design including a set of steps leading to the main decks. The steps were plywood finished in a single pack home varnish which we recommended to strip back and glass with epoxy and spray in 2 pack for longer life. This also provided a much better surface for the decking pads to be bonded to. The Eva decking only comes 2m x 1m sheets so we decided to run the join lines each side of the center pad so there were 3 pads on each stern. As with most of our Eva decking jobs, the pads are machined with a borderline that trims off each pad giving the job a very smart professional look. The internal design can be chosen from a variety of styles such as diagonal lines, herringbone or even a graphic image however the most common style is the ‘laid decking’ look which is also traditional and matched the original teak decking in the cockpit of this boat. Together with the new 4 foot hull extension, the sterns of this catamaran now really look the part!
