While thinking about how to cut the front face of the companionway hood, I went ahead and installed the sill and the remaining toe rail.
Here is the sill glued in place.
I had to go out and buy more ratchet clamps to hold the side pieces in place, because of their bevelled top and bottom edges. More clamps!
And here is the permanently fitted starboard toe rail.
Progress is quite good considering that all work on rub rails has ceased until more Sapele arrives.
