Looks good. Make sure to seal them really well, oak doesn't do well in a marine environment. If you check my thread (Spirit 23 in Charlotte) you can see some I made using that plastic lumber they sell at lowes and such. Also ended up making drop boards from it as well. I almost want to do something similar for the bulkheads where the chainplates bolt so I never have to worry about rotting.

P: I should have applied a one new coat of wax to her before launching - but the Hull still looks good.
TS: I sanded wood then liberally applied expensive UV protected spar varnish before install.
