The aft and middle bow both have rivets going through the bow irons that attach brackets to the bow irons. Did the wood part of the bow extend into the bow iron far enough that the rivets went through the wood part of the top bow? I'm replacing the wood part of the bows and the wood part was not original. I am using 1 piece wood bows for replacement.

The curved wood in those bows didn't go into the bow far enough to interfere with those rivets. The main part of bow is flat 1 3/8wide x3/4 inch thick.

The straight middle piece of wood goes into the socket far enough, so the two semi-tubular rivets will go through the wood and the socket on each side. The center piece is rabbited on three sides, just enough for it to slide in. You want a snug fit, but not enough to spread apart the socket.

Close up of curved wood pieces that go into the curved metal limb of the irons, original tack strips, two pieces stacked on each other.



Straight section that runs across from metal to metal.
