I have hit a snag with the rear hatch for my Sheatwater 17 Hybrid build which I would like to share and maybe seek advice on how to address.
The manual describes epoxying a reinforceing plate on the inside of the rear hatch which at the time I questioned whether it will actualy help, but dutifully did.
However, the clamping process has opened up the nice curve of the hatch so it now no longer matches that of the deck... most disappointing.
At this stage I am contemplating milling/carving/hacking it off in an attempt to releive the stress of the hatch so that it will hopefully correct itself.
Anyone any thoughts or comments ?
