Seatback Frame | Transom Cleat Installation

I mentioned in a previous post that I decided to fit cleats on the transom to receive the rear edge of the seatback panels.

Just relying on a skinny epoxy fillet joint here would not be satisfactory.

I made the cleats from some scrap Ash left over from the floorboards. They were quite fiddly and time consuming, each edge being bevelled, but it was worth it to know the panels will have a secure landing.

Here is the starboard cleat glued and clamped in place.



And this is the port cleat, similarly secured.



I will clean them up nicely when they are cured.
