Re: Redoing Companionway hatch

I'm assuming you can't just take the old wood off and leave the fiberglass deck uncovered? If you are going to put an additional layer of wood on top, you should use marine plywood (there are fewer voids), and cover with a layer of glass and epoxy. Wash the amine blush off with water, fair with thickened epoxy, prime, and paint. Some pictures would help to sort out the construction part.
