Building the lightweight bench seats

The carbon fibre was moulded around the edge of the float and then we made a wooden support frame while we positioned the newly painted thin wall tubing for the bench seat frame:

We then cleaned up the brackets so they look a lot nicer!

Here we can see a close up of the seat frame with the wire stay:
