Deck design and Classic boats

When built to plans, generally the classic designs have flat decks.  Does this cause them to be prone to rot, in practice?Would it be difficult to add deck camber without causing other structural problems with the boats? Thanks! Joe See More

"Thanks for the reply. I was thinking of doing something similar, regarding raising the decks compared to the plans. Elimination of the coachroofs would clean up the lines of the boat."

"Nice boat! I'm planning to build a Tehini over the next few years. I'd be interested in any interior photos you have, as well as descriptions of modifications you have made. Do you have coachroofs or is the entire hull a flat deck? How…"

"I've read about your boat on the multihull forum, and studied all the pictures you had posted. It was your boat, and Colin Flynn's, that got me to think a Wharram can be modified without resulting in catastrophe. Thanks! Joe"

Questions re: classic design

Hello all.I’ve been reviewing a set of Tehini plans, and I have some building questions.So here goes:1. I’ve read in the other forums about galvanized screws, nails, etc and problems with corrosion. There are also reports of some kinds of stainless corroding. I’ve read that some boats are constructed without metallic fittings, at least below the waterline.What I was considering was using cheap wood screws to hold parts in place until the epoxy cures, then remove the screws.

What are your sailing plans (coastal, offshore, etc) and how many will be sailing with you. We had Tehini study plans up on the wall for many months. The designs are so appealing, it is hard to choose!
