O'Day Daysailor I

Hi Just bought a Spindrift Daysailor I. I need to do a little restoration before sailing. The boat has the large cutty cabin entrance like the DS I. It also has wood floors. I noticed that there are no wood side or back panels on the boat. Instead someone added padding as a back rest. When I sit on the rails it seems that there is some flex. I have found no soft spots. The tap test is good. Could it be that this boat is missing the side wood panels? Are the wood panels needed to stiffen the rails? Do you generally sail this boat while sitting on the seats or on the rails? Can you sit on the rails when the wood side pieces are present?
Thanks for the help. Eric

I have an O'Day ds1 and the cockpit has wood coamings surrounding the cockpit. They extend higher than deck level so if you put the rail in the water the coming will deflect the water from the cockpit. You should be able to Google for images.
