FORWARD HATCH-REPLACING WITH CLEAR TINT MATERIAL
I am not an expert carpenter, but I made new forward and lazarette hatch covers for my boat which look great and don''t leak a drop. One is about 18"x20", the other is 23"x28". I was going to use Lexan in the forward one, which would have added about $75 to the cost, but I prefer the looks of wood anyway. Materials ran less than $200, excluding hardware, which I re-used from the former covers. A good carpenter would make them in a short day, not counting glue-drying time.
