Mold for the compression pad. Clamped in place with two wooden sticks. Same mold, seen from the other side.
I decided to leave a small coaming in the cockpit aft of the beam mounts. The coaming has been roughly cut, dug out and filled with putty, and is taped to the cockpit seat. Once cured, I'll trim the edge using a sander & grit 40.
Stern also has been roughly cut and filled. Once cured I'll sand it back to match the final outline.
