Do you have the swing room for a door? On many boats, a curtain was used, since there really wasn't sufficient space for a door to swing and still open enough to let a person through... Before going off and making a door, or even ordering the supplies for a door.... mock one up out of foamcore board or corrugated cardboard, and see what will work.

Also, you may have to leave the bottom of the door a bit above the cabin sole, especially if the cabin sole isn't completely level or flat.... so the door can swing properly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
