Cut cleats for the middle seat.
Middle seat installed, silicone bronze screws through the hull to the cleat and seat, then screws inside through the seat to the cleat. Wood sealer for the case cap.
Marked and cult slats for the side seat. We wanted slats and curved fron, vs the solid seat in the palns. Lots of small cuts to get a decent fit along the sweepeing hull.
Slats are 2 1 /2 inches wide and flow over the aft compartment. We are not going to seal the stern or bow compartments, but instead add XPS foam and/or fenders for extra floatation.
Primed the starboard side with Rust-Oleum Marine Wood and Fiberglass Primer.
