My Mill Creek 13 is nearing completion. I want to install flush hatches in the fore and aft decks. I'm alittle apprehensive about cutting holes in these perfectly good decks.
I think I can manage to cut and save the deck cutouts for use as hatch covers.
The deck is fiberglassed. Should I expect springback of the hatch pieces after I have them cut out?
Will I need to laminate a cover on a form to match the shape of the decks or can I use a couple of "ribs" under the cover to hold the shape?
Thanks in advance. I'm so close to finishing that I would hate to screw it up at this point.
