I got this really cool rook pattern carbon fiber on closeout and wanted to use it somewhere. I figured the floor of the cockpit would be a good place. It's an area of the boat that needs to be tough and a location that I can show it off without taking too much away from beautiful wood grain of the plywood. I put down the carbon fiber and a layer of 4 oz glass over the top.
The green tape is locating the inside location of those gunwale tank bulkheads. The next step was gluing in those bulkheads.
After shaving down each side to a tight fit, I glued and clamped them in.
