Below, a 6″ x 24″ x 3/8 ply backing plate for the lower lee board pivot mount. Michalak shows this glued and screwed to the cabin wall which is 1/4″ ply. In an abundance of caution, I added this plate inside the cabin. The 3 star drive (T40) heads you can see are for 3″ x 1/4″ exterior construction screws; there is a 4th one behind the bulkhead at the right of the photo…

Meanwhile, the upper lee board slot calls for through bolts; there are 7 x 1/4″ carriage bolts here.
