Wayne,
Quick answer, the deck is fitted over the hull, the liner is fitted from inside, against hull.
I found st. stl. screws and bolts to hold them together. I fiberglassed over the whole shebang. The wood I fitted is thru bolted w/#10 NF st.stl. bolts and use an acorn nut to finish on ID.

The terrible Chimera's Claw

Terrible since it is also known as a can opener. I replaced the stem fitting a few years ago and decided to add the claw feature. I was reworking the foredeck and decided I liked Sampson posts. The fairleads are welded into the plating. My Anchor winch and twin cleats include substantial back up plates.

And in spite of a few rough crossings I'm still here...still sailing my Chimera. I've spent a few weeks in the great lakes racing on other peoples boats and well you know the rest of the story.
I've got almost 200 pix of my Helms #504 1075 with many mod's here

that's public album I've got a few others there of sail work, my locker is a trove.
Let me know how you're doing on the project.
