  • Raised Hatch

    I ran out of time and had someone finish my hatch project inspired by RC65. I got the bench seats from the owner of a 26 on Long Island. I replaced all the wood with Azec and installed new hinges. Seat unfolds aft but there are no supports yet. Hatch was raised almost 8" and is a perfect height. Can lean on seats like a leaning post or sit and see over windshield. Height also makes it easier walking around because seats overhang hatch. Just bulky trying to get to engine but doable.

        Nicely done! And I like the improved functionality for you. We all use our boats a bit differently so tweaking is a good thing. ☘☘☘
