Thanks for the replies. If you look in the picture on the side you will see the sag in the sides. Unfortunately I don't have a better picture of the wood rotted an drooping. But I also attached a pictue of the boat's interior before it got bad. I was looking to return it close to it's orginal state. I want to put a new wood backing under the upholstery. So a nice looking finish is not important. It's the rot factor. Just want to get some longevity out of this repair. I hope to have the boat for 5 to 10 more years before upgrading to another.
