Got it finally fit the last ply support board. Was complicated by them not cutting things right long ago. Had to trim bottom edge of the cabin side, was too long by about 1/4". To make things look and feel right, everything has to be cut and fit right, otherwise it wont be right.

Also glued the back corner. The side plywood will stop about 10 inches before the back corner. The rear plywood goes across the entire back of the boat into each back corner.

White paper is the pattern to cut.

Rear corner

Blue tape helps form the glue to shape

Sawblade makes a great flattener scraper. Easier than belt sanding as my belt is worn out, plus I can get into tight corners. After scraping and hand block sanding smoother, I recoated with a flash layer of PL sealing the entire surface including the ply support so no water can weep in.

Another view of the rear corner. It does fit pretty well the plywood, but may need some filling on top the plywood to smooth the flow.

after finishing the side, I will have to strip the rear teak to fix the plywood under there too.
