Remodeling the v-berth

I bought a 40+ year-old Columbia 10.7 four years ago and have been refitting her every year. This Spring I finally got to the v-berth. Ripped out all the old foam-back vinyl headliner and hull covers and installed insulation, PVC panels and mahogany slats in their place. It's finally taking shape.

Used closed cell rubber and interlocking exercise mats for the insulation. I have a great lumberyard nearby that sells all types of premium wood. Got some African mahogany and cut the slats using my table saw.
