Cockpit coaming step 1: Wood strips

I’m building the cockpit coaming by first building a wood strip riser. I'll fibreglass it into place then put foam around the outside and use that as a form to create the coaming lip – at least that’s the plan.

First step is building the riser. To do this I followed Nick Schade’s instructional video and it’s seemed a pretty quick and easy exercise.

So far, the riser is in place, a fillet is on and when it dries I’ll wet sand and follow up with 2 layers of fibreglass.

It’s an ocean cockpit so fairly short and only 38cm interior width.
