Cockpit Side Panels

I decided to make these panels out of 1/4" to save weight since they are vertical panels and won't be walked on. Then I remembered how I tend to sail boats in some pretty unusual attitudes and that these panels may indeed be walked on. So I added a grid system since it seemed to work so good on the berth panels. Notice the panels are curing in the house--yep, Denise has been so kind as to let me bring stuff in to cure at 70 degrees rather than 50 degrees in the shop. It goes a lot faster, plus the whole family can enjoy my handywork (and partially cured epoxy actually chips off the floor quite easily--so no worries!)
