While Clarity is predominantly going to be finished in a user-friendly, abuse-tolerant workboat type finish, there will be one exception.  She has an added set of narrow side decks, which we are going to replace, as they are made of heavy exterior ply and some aluminum edging.  Sue suggested a natural wood finish, and, although I’m usually only a fan of brightwork on OTHER peoples’ boats, I immediately knew (this is called ‘clarity’, BTW!) that a bright finish was the only acceptable option, so there will be a nice piece of marine plywood, possibly with a teak and holly veneer, used for the new, slightly sculpted version of the side decks.  The center cutout for the cockpit will either be used for the cockpit sole, or possibly made into hatches for totally sealing off the cockpit (which would enable a tent to be easily erected on the boat….).
