went to storage to get the boat.  Got there and found that my cover and all my straps grew legs and found a new home.  :mad: At least they left my engine cover.  Point being it sat un covered for who knows how long      ( havent been there in 5 weeks).  Its been raining pretty good up here so my interior that I was gonna push through 1 more season is now sitting in a sloppy pile next to the boat.  My carpentry skills are very good (16 years), my upolstery skils...  eh, not so much.  Probably gonna rebuild the front buckets the way they were.  I don't like the layout in the rear so much though.  Two small benches facing each other.  Very inconvienent for anyone over 4' tall.  Any suggestions on an allteranate arangement??  gonna post pics tonight if I have time.  Thanks for readin.

Gotta fix the filler neck, rewire entire boat and redo interior.






BTW if anyone has info on how to get pics from photobucket to here as a thumbnail let me know.  Sorry bout the havin to open each pic individually.

I have a question for any one who has built thier own seats. I'm very close to being done with the rough construction of my rear bench.  What I don't know is, how much room should i leave between the gunnel and the frame.  I'm sure the upolsterer will need some room to wrap in there but I'm not sure.  I would go ask an upolstery shop but I haven't found one yet.

It is built tight to the gunnels right now. 
Thanks,  Brian.

I'm doing the wood for my sanger right now. There is only enough room for a few layers of vynel between the wood and the gunwhales, 1/8" or so.

Pics of the front seat construction...


88 kerfs 3/8" oc.  I used 3/8 5ply, the kerf goes half way through the fourth ply, found this to be the best for strenght and smoothness through the arc.



I made some extra base cutous and screwed them together.  This gives something to to keep the arc nice and symetrical.  It is temporarily screwed to the upper part of the form. 



Soaked it in H2o for a while. Didn't take very long, as only the outter 1.5 plys had to soak.  Bout half an hour.  Clamped it for about two hours to let the shape set a little.
Glued, screwed and clamped like a mofo.  It was a bit of a wrestling match by myself, but for once I took my time and got it pretty dam perfect.


Here it is, all done and curing.

Construction is done on all three seats.  I'm gonna sand em down tommorow and seal em up..  Not sure what to use to seal the wood??  Any suggestions?  I've read some guys use FG resin,  but that seams like a big headache for the upolstery guy (trying to nail/staple through it).

Resin is not a problem for the upholsters, just dont get crazy with the glass.

Did you give yourself any access to the space below the seat cushions?  Either for storage or to allow to air out?

Got a break from the rain.  I buttoned up the electrical (Thanks Glenn) and gave it a quick fire up for a lil extra motivation to finish.  Carpet, upolstery and a lot of cleaning and shes ready.

haha how'd it work where the seat cushions and how tight it is?  it looks like when you'd put some foam backed vinyl that it would rub...
