Re: Cutting Flush Hatches

Posted by Walt on Oct 14, 2004

First cover the deck in the hatch area with masking tape then lay out the hatch line on the tape. I layed out the line I wanted the finished opening to be along with the inside line for the hatch (2 lines. Then I started the cut with the small saw that CLC sells,after the slit in the deck was big enough I finished up with a saber saw (jig saw) using a laminent cutting blade.the finished cut was about 1/16th" wide after a little sanding the gap was almost 1/8th " but that closed up after a few coats of epoxy. Have Fun Walt
