2016.12.26 - More Main Hatch

The aim today is to get as much of the two hatches done as possible. The first stint of work was the strengthening of the main hatch.

All four sides of the main hatch have been doubled with pieces of plywood that are 9mm shorter to allow the top to be inset. Titebond III was used to glue the pieces together as it is sufficiently waterproof for this purpose. I brought the hatch into the house to warm it up which will speed the setting of the glue and hopefully mean that it can be worked on tomorrow.
