Nightmare. Finished varnishing the whole damn thing-shoudl have painted! Trying to put it back together (must sell now that I have outrage). Have two little pieces of wood--say 3inches or less, not rectangular, as one end has a curve. Bout half an inch thick. WHERE THE DEVIL DO THEY GO?
Boat is 1989 ss. I really want to cry.
Help appreciated greatly.
oh, I lost half of the ffing screws as well-dumb ass that I am.

Sounds like the pieces that hold the seat back to the stainless rails. If they are both the same that's them.

Dumbass....Is that French?

Do you mean the outside of the side rails or the inside? The pieces have two screw holes in them and the side rail only has one screw hole in it. It seems like it should fit size wise--a way to stabilize the side rail and seat, but I just can't figure it out.
thanks for any help

I think jameso was suggesting the missing pieces go between the wrap around rail and the seat back.
You indicate your boat is a Super Sport, right? Thus the side rail wraps around the back seat and provides the support for the mahogany seat back. This is where the pieces likely go.

Beach boy, look in reference section the 1984 with seat back shows these pieces, two pieces each about the size of your hand, should have one hole in trailing edge and two holes in the part that connects to seat back, glad you don't work on aircraft!

Planning to use the new boat on Saturday?
Tell yourself you can't use the new boat until you figure out how the wood goes back together. My guess, you'll have it done by Friday night!
p.s. We maybe in area on saturday afternoon.

No, the back rail really does not wraparound--just is parellel to the boat. There are two other bigger pieces which go under the driver's seat and attach to the hull. These are two little pieces, with curved ends, containing only two holes. Unfortunatley, the pictures in the referecne section dont show these little suckers, butiut does show the same model. I coueo e-mail photos to someone who has this model--and maybe they cna help?
AUBV I will monitor channel 16 SAt pm--call for North Beach. be fun to hook up if both in the area.
Might also be fun to get a bunch of central/south jersey whalers together--fun to see what people have done to their boats, perhaps at island beach.

many thanks to Joe from Indiana whoa e-mailed me for my phone number and called to tell me the exact (now obvious to me) spot to screw the last two pieces and complete the project--I would never have seen it except for his help.
I suspect that this is one of the good thing s that JIMH was hoping would happen with this forum--imagine a call from halfway across the country to help a stranger!
