a suggestion for the lashing cutouts...

when I did the flooring for the rrc rack, the flooring was so smooth that I had a difficult time controlling the jigsaw. The cuts looked crappy.
In hindsight, it would have worked better to put down some contact paper, layout and draw the circles on it, then use the jigsaw on top of the paper, for more friction and better control. I always learn the hard way.
For the straight cuts I used a straight edge clamped onto the starboard, and a carbide blade in the skil saw, no problems.
