What kind of hatch is that? I'll be stating my SK14 build soon and like the idea of some dry storage.

Thanks for the heads up on Port A. We will want to be there. Been too long away.

Brian, that's a Tempress hatch. A search will find them right off on amazon. They're not expensive and can't be expected to be watertight of course, but I have them on my LB22 and like them fine.

Don, let's be sure to hook up if possible. Shirley remembers you and Julie well and asked if you'd be there. My cell is 210 eleven eighty three. Shirley's is 210, two one eight, seven five nine five. Looking forward to it.

Finally made some more progress. It took me a long time to fair the cockpit. I used Quickfair and I must be the slowest at fairing in this group, but I finally got it good 'nuff a few days ago and got the inside slotted rails fit. As soon as they dried I flipped her. Photobucket gave me fits so when I finally got it working I loaded all these pics quickly before it failed me again :? Anyway here's the faired cockpit and slotted inwhale:

That last pic shows my Rube Goldberg clamping effort to get a little twist in the rail. Seemed to work :D Then came the flip. The pics tell the story. She's heavy enough to make it a tiny bit of a struggle, but not too much. Next are pics of the foredeck dry fitted with the access hatch up front and the hatch to the little dry(ish) storage behind it.

Then I flipped her. The pics tell the story.

Now back to the sander :roll:

Thanks Jeff. She is a cool little boat, not thanks to my workmanship but the design. Now your project, Peter, the hydroplane, that is truly cool. Brave too I think :wink:
