Re: Oops! Hatch Stiffener
Posted by Howard on Jul 16, 2005
i would simply not use the broken piece and use scrap wood to replace/make a new piece. assume the broken piece was for the forward position in the forward-most hatch..then you will need the smallest piece.
while you could make it "stiffer" by doubling it up...i don't think it is worth the trouble. right around the hatch edges you will have three layers....the deck, the hatch stiffener on the inside, and the lip on the outside. four pieces would, in my view, be overkill.
