Now it's time to add the deck supports. They add more strength to the ends of the boat, and they are another reason why I do not add ribs all the way to the ends on the inside. These, also, will be hidden from view, but are important pieces for strength purposes. The deck caps will go on top of these, once the glue dries. I add a large quantity of glue to these, because when I add the caps, I press on them really hard.
