Hi, Nice work on the hatch. Did you build it or refinish it?
I have a challenger I'm starting work on. I'll need to make a hatch.
Did you use the oak or teak and did you use the old one as a template or start from scratch?

jack of many trades, i see. take care. remember the perfect storm.
there's some crazy weather this time of year.

Yeah, today was the first day that was warm enough for me to do it. I started to fill in some gaps and epoxy-ed the part of the keel where the rudder broke off. I will get some pictures up of how I did it, actually pretty clever (a little proud of myself). I'm working on a long liner out of Gloucester for the next few days so I wont get a chance to see how it turned out till wed. I'll let you know.

There's no other love like the love between a man and the derelict vessel he is trying to resuscitate.

Thanks! I wish I could say that it took me no time at all but I probably put 14 hours in to that one.
