Fibreglass | Seatbacks & Cockpit Deck

As usual the first task when making 'glass panels for the seatbacks was to make a pattern.

Here is the paper pattern, test fitted inside the port seatback.

You can see that the pattern continues out across the cockpit deck, covering the outboard edge of the deck and overlapping onto the single full width sheet of cloth laid fore and aft along the centreline of the deck.

In this way we cover both seatbacks and the whole deck with just three 'glass panels. Neat, huh?!

Lastly the cloth panels were cut, fitted and installed.

There isn't a whole lot to look at but here is a view from astern of the wetted out seatbacks and deck.

Nearly done with fibreglass for the time being - just the inside of the transom to go!
