RickLaPaz is on a distinguished road
I have been hanging doors in homes and commercial buildings for over 33 years, and make a very good living doing so. When you add in the idiosynchrosies that is a boat, the difficulty and time go up exponentially. This is not a project for the DIY'selfer, and even less so if you think that you are going to fabricate one from scratch and then install it. By looking at your pic, I personally would quote a price of $1,200.00 for the door, un -inished, plus another $500.00 for installation. Then you have the hardware and the varnish work to contend with. But those are L.A. prices--your mileage may vary............

Good luck,
