I must be blind; can't see it on the plans. What size are the boards of the turtle deck? Thanks!

Those seven boards that go from the pilot seat-back to just forwards of the tail....I just found in my shop (been several years) I have seven boards labeled Turtle Deck and they are 1" X 1/4". I'll use them.

Thanks!
