Dec 14 - Cutting deck reinforcement pieces
Pygmy includes a length of 3 1/2" wide plywood, which you have to cut to size to fit the width of the deck panels. They will be used to strenghten the deck, immediately forward of the cockpit.

Be careful when you start cutting these pieces - you'll need the 'extra' to create 'cheek plates' later on, which will form the side of the seat, and which the seat back will be secured to.
