It was easier to build up the plywood support using glue and sawdust since it tapered to nothing at the forward plywood deck edge and is about 1/4 " too low at the other end of the support.

And I found out it was supposed to be cut a 10* this support, so I recut the new wood to 10*.
The cabin side angles in 5* so it works out. Nothing on a boat is straight. 10 -5 = 5* slope then for the decking.

The problem was they mounted it 1/4 inch too low on the mahogany cabin side plank at this spot, then it rode up to the transom, so it was never straight. I now will have the teak angling at a proper 5* so it drains to the gunwale. Somehow the cabin mahogany side plank must have just warped, and it was never properly secured which the bolt does fix.

I noticed this side of the cabin is longer than the other side, and the worker just screwed the ply support piece aligned to the bottom of the cabin side.

And I got the last edge piece on the cabin plank.
This marina is very nice quiet place, never see anyone here after labor day.
I feel like I have a private slip.
