2016.12.31 - More Fore Hatch

Unfortunately, the anti-warp measures failed to prevent the twist in the plywood. It is not as bad as it was but it is not all gone. So I will just put up with a bend hatch. When it is down and clipped in position it will be flat against the inner coamings and it is only in the raised position that the twist will be noticeable.


The construction lines for the strengthening battens.


Glued and screwed. A view from the inside.


Resting in position since the heater is on so the warm interior will make the glue set quickly. Just the lower, outer coamings to do and the hole for the deadlight.
