Penn Yann seat question

    I'm starting to rebuild the seats for my 1944 Penn Yan Rainbow. The seat frame is doweled, but I also found brass rods that ran through one of the two dowels for each joint. I'm wondering if these were factory installed, or if I'm looking at a modification/attempt to strengthen the seat?

    I'm planning on using the original seats (they are in pretty good shape), and need to decide if I should 'reinstall' the brass rods after I re-dowel/glue the seat back together.

    Any thoughts/perspectives?
