Thanks. Like Paul says, used only marine plywood then laminated w a good Formica type matl just like they came from CC w a couple of addl steps; laminated the bottom edges of the marine plywood to stop any wicking action, and varnish coat the interior facings for a nice look and as a sealer. The original board was still sound except the bottom edges in places and some delamination of exposed panels so took those queues to make the addl steps.
The teak trim pieces are original except they have been triple sanded/varnished instead of oiled. Joined sections w original marine hardware and epoxy based adhesive. I used a small cabinet shop and am glad I did, he was meticulous. Now I just need to get busy and get it all reinstalled as soon as the hull is finished.
