Companionway Slide | Trimming To Fit

The build manual states that we should expect to do some trimming to get the companionway slide to fit properly, and it's quite right as usual.

My slide fits beautifully when closed, like this.

But it jams very slightly when pushed back inside the hood, as here.

You can see that I have marked it up to widen the slot slightly so it will slide easily into place.

Here I am cutting a sliver out of the slot with the Japanese saws.

That did the trick. It fits nicely now.

It's now back inside the house to await installation.
