Hatch lids. I seem to have devised an inordinately complex system for this. It seems to work, and I love the end result, but damn, it’s a lot of work. Making the guttering just so. Then cutting all the rims just so and making each piece fit just so. Then epoxying them together just so. And marking out the panel for each one and gluing it into the rim just so. Then grinding and sanding, and glassing each one off the goddam things. And then wondering how they could possibly not fit perfectly. And making it so once again. And the big ones need a bit of extra laminate to make them sufficiently stiff. And then there’s then damned latches. I guess it only takes a few days, but sheesh. It is so fun when someone orders an open boat. Zoom.

A few other concurrent projects: the adjustable footbrace.

The… I’m not sure what to call these other than kind of expensive. Walnut seat extension/hand grips/tie-downs. I kinda like them.

We’ve still got to cut out the removable ransom for motoring.
