richardharvey is on a distinguished road
My edges were good and only the plywood was rotted so itook it toa local patternmakers shop and one of the guys mademe new insides useing strips of 1"x 3" teak he also had a guide so thathe could bevel the edges to produce the right curvature. Although it initially leaked between the slats I fixed that by cutting grooves down each side and inserting a thin piece of wood in the grooves befor glueing and clamping the whole works back together. Cost about $250.00 but works and looks great.
