Hello, I would like to build comings to protect the cockpit from spray and seas. I am thinking of a curved plywood core about 12" high (backrest) that would be attached with lags from below and glassed over with glass tabs to the deck. Has anyone built their own and or have ideas for design, layout and construction? I also want to attach the main winches to the comings so that its closer and away form the lifelines. This would have to be very strong. I have seen this with stainless steel support brackets bolted to the comings. Are there original plans for this arrangement?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
