hatch weekend

This weekend was spent installing hatches.


I’d routed the frame of the raised deck hatch last week so after a bit of prep work I went around with a tube of sealant and popped the hatches into place.

The companionway hatch is exposing my limited carpentry skills. After cutting the rounded frame for the sliding hatch I glued and then clamped things together. Next step is to build and install the runners. And then hope I can put it together in such a way that the hatch actually works.

Speaking of hatching… I arrived at the stable one morning to the news that this little guy had arrived over night.

    Hey Andrew… how are things going with your VG? Any pics of the progress?

    I’m building a small FL14 now but would like to build the VG23 someday. How much $$ do you think you have invested in it so far.

    Hey Dave,

    I haven’t taken many photos lately. Alot of my time has been taken up with ’smaller’ tasks.

    How’s the FL14 coming along? Are you ‘documenting’ the build?

    The expenses question is a tough one. Mainly ’cause I don’t want to know the answer ;-)
    I have a box full of receipts that maybe I’ll tally one day…
