Oh and a photo for Trevor G showing the bags I use for small stuff in the cabin with velcro backs so they stick anywhere.

he's doing a good job for sure

i think i will go for squarish bits of wood for the infill that double as vertical fillers to make boxes in that floor void to stop stuff moving about when at sea. then longer but narrower cushions that are infills/backrests. they will simply velcro to the carpet lining which will be on the tubes

I'm thinking a-frame at the back, but not sure yet, can't quite decide. I think aesthetically, she needs balancing to the stern a bit

Perhaps I should explain.

With the Wind blowing directly onto the beach in Bembridge harbour on Sunday morning, my ocean gathered a couple of knots from a standing start in about 15 feet with just the wind directly behind it and it gently came to rest with the bow in the sand.

16-17) now confirmed, seats need moving back a bit and wheel and throttle need raising. Biffs first pic he posted show the mouldings he made or that, now perfectly positioned for me.
18-20 show the tubes glassed over before the glass was cut to size, and the cabin placed back in position
