Spanish cedar rails (risers) are are attached to the inside of the hull for tying off lines and hanging fenders to protect the sheers when docking the boat. The risers are constructed from 85" x 1¾" x ¾" pieces of spanish cedar, shaped, epoxy coated and finished as brightwork (see the varnishing page for details).

The risers are attached to the vertical ribs approximately 8" below the sheers. Epoxy bonding and 2" #12 stainless steel screws are used to install the risers onto the ribs.
