Re: Making Companionway Doors

Never had drop boards but how about this solution. Attach with piano hinge the new doors (maybe cut up drop boards) to hardwood baton that fits snug in the old drop board slot. Pre drill access holes in hinge to screw to backside of slot. Add drip bottom and clasp to doors Nothing is altered permanently and offers the chance to make it out of 5 bucks of ply wood to see if you like it.
