Seat foam is set in place with wood rails, both for support and looks. I'll carve the seat shape and glue it to the deck with contact cement once I get the oars and can do a final fitting.
Built a footrest out of left over ash and Port Orford cedar (love that stuff). I may just go into the wood shop once a week and cut and plane some scraps so I can re-permeate the house with the wonderful odor. And turned a foot bar from hard maple. These too will be mounted once I do the final fitting with the oars.
And finally, I found a Lone Pine flag at the Dartmouth Co-op. Might be fun to fly it off the dory sometime. But maybe a little too flashy and pretentious? We'll see.
