Strip: Deck Time!

Time to start the deck and a few questions ....

1. the first few deck sheer strips ... how do you terminate the ends, at the bow and stern?
I'd like to see a few pics of how this should look.

2. I think I can discard the strongback at this point. I have the hull, with the internal forms, sitting in soft saddles now.
I am tight on workspace so if I can get rid of the strongback that would be good. Is that a bad idea?

3. I have heard it's best to avoid yellow glue (Titebond, etc) for the deck since it is sensitive to heat. What glue do folks like to use for the deck stripping?

Thx,
Rob
