This is the bow with the gunnel rail screwed on. The stainless piece to stop the wood splitting is a cut down spoon screwed on.
This is the transom with the outboard motor bracket attached. Note the gunnel rail to the left also the bolt has a spoon as a washer to stop the bolt pulling into the wood. I was a bit dubious about hthe strength of the glue and screwed the deck down with stainless screws.
