Question New V-Berth Doors

I'm looking to replace the doors that go to the v-berth in the forward cabin of my P30. When I bought the boat one was missing so I do have one for a template, but for constancy think I'll replace both of them. Didn't think I needed them, but lately I have found they are nice to have.

Anybody have any suggestions or know someone that can cut them for me?

You might consider replacing the doors with a split hanging curtin, using the same fabric as the cushions. The fabric curtain when open, takes alot less space than wood doors, yet is just as usable as to privacy. A solution that has worked on other boats...

Certified...in several regards...

It’s funny you mentioned a curtain because while I was out last week I was using a towel for a curtain. That’s kind of what sparked my interest to redo the doors. I think I’ll stick with wood doors because they have the added benefit of holding stuff in the cabin when it is rough out.

The doors are simple enough guess all I really is a ” thick chunk of wood and someone with a table saw.
