I’ve been working on the hatch assembly. It’s pretty clunky, I know, and I was going to reduce the height until I got inside the cabin with the hatch closed and realized how much extra headroom I have. So I decided to leave it as is. Anyway , it’s not how I imagined it would look but it works nicely. Next step is to coat the entire thing with epoxy, paint it and install it

Maybe give the tip a quick round over with a router.

Looks great!

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

I agree with Jaysen. You don't want sharp edges on a sailboat because they will find your head.

I’d highly recommend as 1/4 round over. Getting a consistent round over with a belt will require some finesse. If you really really want to do it with sand paper make a 1/4 round cove and put paper in the cove. Then hand sand it. 60/120/200 and prime.

Thanks Jeff! Hope all is well at BBC

The weather here has been all over the place so I’ve been getting work done in intervals and bringing stuff inside when practical. Here’s a pic of the hatch after shaping and fairing . It is good and strong and watertight. Next up, paint! Then I can install the final aft piece once it’s on the boat

What do you do when it’s too cold outside to paint? Ya bring it inside that’s what you do!
