Today I decided to increase the height of the curved mahogany board to match the other ply support rails. I glued on a piece of ripped treated wood. I predrilled screws to use to line up the parts, then took it apart, glued with Titebond 3, screwed it together.

The ends will be cut off this board to fit between the samson tie up posts.
It will fit behind the new boards that take the original position of this board.

This will make it pretty strong I think. Adds little weight for more strength, not that it needed this. Screwed on arched plywood that sits on top of this adds a lot to the structure.

Your looking at the top of the board, so treated plywood will touch the treated wood.
