Deck and buyancy chambers under way

I have fitted a central plank to my fore deck which seems to fit quite well. All of the angles at the bow are compound which is really difficult to measure out and then cut. Square hole for the mast, which I drilled and cut with a coping saw and rasp. Should be more than big enough. Once set I will glue on narrower side planks either side.

I am going to fit boxes under the seat fore and aft to be filled with foam buoyancy. That coupled with the bow tank should keep me afloat if swamped. having the boxes running fora and aft will also stop any water from sloshing from side to side, which can tip you over again all too easily.
