Breasthooks & Seat:


I installed the breasthooks according to the plans. I laminated 3 layers of plywood for the bow breasthook and 2 for the stern hook. You’ll find out about why the one at the bow had to be extra strong later…

Underneath the breasthooks I made a seam with a fillet and fiberglass tape to make them extra strong.


The bottom of the seat was coated 3 times with epoxy before installation, so was the part of the bottom panel that is covered by the seat.
