Maybe paint the inside of the roof before it goes on, then you'd just have to touch up the perimeter ... use PL Cement, narrow bead down the middle of each piece, on those fancy wood supports and just glass/epoxy the perimeter joints.

I was thinking about that but didnt know if epoxy on paint would hold good enough? Could sand off the paint or thought I might mask off the perimeter the underside before painting. All I have is primer I have not selected my colors yet. I'm thinking all off white now! who wants to stand out these days, I'd rather blend in with all the other white boats :)

 Sure is pretty wood. I am thinking of doing a little Mahogany ascent trims in the wheelhouse. It more work and upkeep but i like the look. We will see

Something like this ?

The cuddy roof is not structural for the boat ... main thing is you'd like it strong enough to stand on.  Epoxy on top of paint works fine for that - just rough it up first.  Or as you mentioned, mask off the epoxy zones and paint after you're done.  Maybe it's just as much work as just painting it after installing?  Dunno ...

My first thought was to paint it all white. I only used mahogany because of its resistance to moisture. Its just so pretty to cover up with paint but much easier!!! This Kodiak has been a big boat build!!! We will see how it ends up :)

Yeah ... maybe go all white/light inside the cuddy and save the fancy wood trim work for inside the house?

Upkeep on inside wood is minimal compared to outside wood. A few coats at nice spar varnish will outlast you. I love the wood highlights in a wood boat

Been dry fitting some of the wheelhouse items while pre-glassing other parts. It always helps me to mock stuff up before going too far.

Looks good! Are you going to spool-up your anchor rode on top of the bow, or will part of the space visible to the cuddy carry a bin for anchor rode coming in from a windlass?

I'll be using a windlass, the rode will fall into the center compartment it will have a latched door on it for access when needed. I sloped the floor towards the bow a bit to a through hull attached to a hose that drains into the bilge.
