hatch rims

Posted by Kathrine on Aug 28, 2005

The end is almost in sight....I'm waiting for the glue on the coaming to dry, and looking to start the hatches. I may be missing something, but the hatch installation instructions are a little fuzzy. No mention of the hatch rims or hatch doublers in the literature. From the pictures, I figured the hatch doublers are glued to the underside of the deck on each side of the hatch opening. But are the hatch rims glued to the top of the deck, around the openings, or are they glued to the undersides of the hatch covers? Oh yeh, CLC forgot to mention the circus contortionist performance required to fillet the aft side of the fore bulkhead...not something to be attempted by anyone afraid of enclosed spaces. Gotter done, though!
