Dunkerque Decks and Sub-decks

The new sub-decks for the Dunkerque are are little different from most other ships. The fore and aft sub-decks are epoxied in as normal to the lower levels of the hull. In those two sub-decks are slots in which to permanently mount a board upright that will connect to the upper sub-deck. This provides the maximum amount of usable space inside the ship while further strengthening it.
