    Thanks all. Can’t quite get her in the crew baggage compartment unfortunately.
    The kit came with an Okume cockpit coaming, but again I’m just not a fan of varnished Okume. I’m hoping this approach will work. Mahogany doesn’t bend very well so the lams are very thin, but that does make them easy to get into place.
    Our daughter came up with the perfect name for her. More on that later......

    I see a WoodenBoat Launchings hat in your future...looking forward to see how you work the hatch closures.

    You're around 6 feet right? I've been pondering a kayak design for the family, our sons are 6 footers.

    Still fiddling with the hatches. Not set on the design yet. Yep 6’3”.

    The kit uses a mahogany rubrail. Pretty, but not much in the way of protection. I’m looking for a 3/4 section that will sit over the edge of the deck and extend an inch at most down the side. Maybe hard black rubber as it gets rough at our dock.

    Would something wood-looking like Trex work for a rubrail?

    If you are thinking 'black rubber' for a rubrail, could one of those aftermarket tailgate protectors be modified to fit ? (The type that wraps over the top edge of the gate from inside ?) - It seems a shame to have to add something like that to a beautiful boat . . . .

    You might have some problems with expansion with Trex like stuff. I'd be inclined to look for some used firehose???
