Re: attaching wood furring strips to inside of hull

Generally there's some curvature so some way of wedging things in for the cure is usually called for anyway. I used 3M 4200, laid some closed cell foam in the areas between the strips and covered it all with battens. It looks great, flat panels will often be difficult to fit to even a minor compound curve.

It wasn't a large area, but the side of the berth shown below was just a cushion laid against the bare glass originally.
