Dry-Fitting the Portholes

Filed under: Building - Cabin, Hardware — tomlarkin @ 3:26 am

I fitted the new portholes yesterday. Today I’ll seal the bare plywood with epoxy. The ports have springs in the hinges so they stay open automatically.  I also fitted the stern hatch so I can pre-drill the through-mounting holes on the hinge side and seal those holes at the same time.
