Aft Cabin Settee Frame-In

I had been postponing this project for as long as possible as it required another sheet of Coosa (expensive stuff). But I could wait no longer (dependent projects are creeping up). This is the secondary framing for the aft cabin settees. It divides the locker space underneath and provides some structural reinforcement. Instead of fiberglass and resin, the joints against the hull were glued with structural adhesive (easier to apply, less messy and just as strong).

It does not look like much, but there are lots of cleats that were "cut, mitered, fitted, trimmed, repeat..." down to half blade-widths. Lets just say I got a good workout on the stairs into the boat.

Settee surfaces are next when the plywood arrives.
