Well I am back into it again and am now at the step fo building the braced bulkheads for installation. I found it hard to get meranti so I got Hoop Pine (or as I call it gold pine, bloody expensive). The picture below shows the 19×19 hoop pine cut to size for around the forward bulkhead (seat riser). It has not been trimmed to take the curve of the hull yet.
