the side walls on the FB, because the seats are gone and there are major gaps in it.

I thought the seats gave a lot of structural rigidity to the side walls. but they dont. so there is no problem when removed.
and maybe I was worried to much
for me it's quite a big operation, because I have almost no experience in fiberglass.








By the way, this is the epoxy that I use

Have you finished the sides where the seats were yet?

I just filled where the seat back was and left the rest open.

Put removable black plexiglass panels there and use that area to store fishing rods. Perfect use of space on my boat.
