Very nice work. It's very interesting to see how this is done right by professionals. Some things are better left to those who really know how to do it right!

Al: I was very fortunate to locate Teak Vinson for the extensive glass work. He's a hard worker with quite varied experience in custom fabrication. Hopefully, he will agree to do the job on other Manatees, especially since all the mistakes have already been learned on mine. I have had the genset in and out of there at least a dozen times now, trying to figure out every possible consequence before I bolt it down. I should add though, that the I've had the genset (375 lbs.) myself (240 lbs), and one other 300 lb. guy standing on the hatch lid and the perimeter, and there wasn't even a creak. It appears that the deck suffered no compromise in strength at all, which was my major concern for making a hatch so large. More to come.

I agree. Very nice work . When I see good fiberglass work like this I wander why I ever try .Wood work I can get by with but fiberglass is better left the pros.This is a great step by step project . Good job Larry
