An attractive optical illusion comes from the curved centre section meeting the straight side pieces: it look for all the world like a slight S curve, which I find very appealing.
I have to say I am very, very relieved to get this trim up. The deckhead looked like ... well, it looked bloody awful with all the gaps showing between the headliner panels. Now it looks very presentable and all the wood breaks up what would be a vast area of white into attractive sections.
So in order to ease myself into it, I smoothed out stern where the outboard bracket will be fitted. The three layers had been pretty rough since fitted.
