Boatman's Footwell

Today I measured, cut and glassed the pieces which make up the boatman's footwell.

This required some assistance from Vivi, trying to get a feeling for how high to place the floor off the bottom hull.

The entire box, once assembled, will be a true rectangle so that the top panel edges will be parallel with the outside edges of the side hatch lids. But the footwell floor, b/w the risers below the floor panel and the side panels which rise up to meet the side hatches, will have a slope from stern to bow which will drain water into the drain tube.
