Re: Redoing Companionway hatch
Dude, you posted this on 3 forums!
Pics would help..
forget the wood... unless she's a wooden boat?
You are talking about the sliding companion way lid?
Get it off the boat, grind all the surfaces. fill the holes. get glass cloth wet it out with epoxy add coats until the weave is filled. Paint with good UV protecting paint. You can tint the epoxy but it still needs UV protection.
When doing glass on glass you can actually use Polyester resin and hardener in lieu of epoxy that costs more.
You're right, I did post on three different fora. I thought I would get a variety of perspectives. I really appreciate you reading this and your advice.
