Sounds like minimal issues on the leaks, which is a plus. How many layers of fiberglass do you use for boat work? I've been dealing with it on the cat eye things for the Miata and it's stout after about 3 layers, but I'm curious how thick it needs to be for a boat.

this is an interior piece. A lot of the youtube people doing similar work are only using 2-3 layers in the corner. I did 4 corner layers widening each time and 2 layers on the main piece of wood. I did 1 extra wrap in the area I will bolt the connection plate. This is also on 1/2" marine plywood which is pretty strong itself.
