NOTE: In the above picture you’ll notice I have extra hard mount points in the shoulder support.  After I mounted the shoulder support I found that I had made a mis-measurement and the mounts were only 3.5″ away from each other.  I measured out the correct location and used a router to reach just to the bottom glass layer, inserted a new piece of birch plywood and added the layups with a couple of extra layups to cover the broad area.  All fixed!
