In between other tasks I decided on a whim to make a pair of plywood drop boards for the companionway.
The wood racks were now empty and I found that I had used some large pieces of scrap 6mm marine ply as a surface for the racks, so I used that!
The hull package provides patterns for the drop boards, so they are quick and simple to make.
Here I am marking out the bottom board with the pattern.
And here I am planing the curve on the top board, using a makeshift shooting board.
When trimmed to size the boards were dropped in for a test fit, as here.
Perfect fit! And looking good.
Finally I glued a flange to the bottom edge of the top board to seal the gap, like this.
I think I will use these rather than the Perspex boards provided in the package. I don't like the idea of people being able to see into my cabin!
