      To replace that wood I would suggest thin exterior plywood and paint it with two coats of an oil based paint. Get an electric staple gun and some monel staples and put it back together. I bought an electric stapler after replacing the wood structure on a captains chair with a regular one and the electric makes easy work of it. The monel staples will last longer and are alleged to be rust proof which will prevent staining in the future.

          If you have any kind of compressor I'd recommend a pneumatic stapler. They're much better than electric and just as cheap. Harbor Freight sellse em..20 Gauge Wide Crown Stapler

                  Deck Waterproofer??? You mean like Thompsons WaterSeal? If so...That's stuff is NO Good! the Oil Paint would be much better. Or you make your own really good sealer by mixing 2 cups Boiled Linseed Oil 4 cups Mineral Spirits and 2 cups of Marine Varnish. Mix well and apply liberally 2 coats. 24 hours between coats. That's what the Old Wood Boat builders used to seal the wood on their boats.

                    I get mine from Marine Vinyl Boat Upholstery. note do not buy their staples they fit a professional machine go to Home Depot/Lowes and get the t50 stainless for a 'normal' staple gun. They might have it here on iBoats as well.

                    If on a budget I've read here where people pick of free old couches and tear apart to use that foam.

                      Ok another question.... the hardware...

                      Looks like the old hardware is going to need to be replaced... but I got to thinking.....
                      Is there a better setup then the old one using just a bolt and nut.... in theory when I tighten the nut the bolt will spin... or will a lockwasher fully prevent this (I feel it would still turn a bit...)

                      I'm thinking like a bolt with some teeth to grab on the wood or something... but lowes has nothing...

                          would it be a good idea to put in a bushing where it goes through the fiberglass... I have a 2 inch hole where the old 1/4 bolts went through... looked like the bolts rubbed the fiberglass down....
