Upgrading forward hatch

My Forward hatch at one time when she was a shrimp boat was a wooden box, at some point replaced with something that was salvaged off what ever. I wanted something more attractive than some painted ill fitting and not all that.

Natural lighting in the forward cabin is good. My hatch isn't as aesthetic as yours. It hasn't leaked, yet.

It has a Hinge across the top " non functional " just for looks, I framed it then marked how i wanted the glass to fit in, Took it back apart used the shaper to cut the groves for the glass, Put it back together, set the 1/2inch smoked lexan in clear marine grade sealant, The top of the lexan is cut a 15 deg, so they make a good joint. the cover pieces are 1 1/4 inches X 1/2 inch . Then bottom piece on each side have a weep hole 3/4 inch X 1/4 inch to let the water out, It will tilt up same as the original but give some light and better look. 6 hours well spent, The lexan was a used door off of a foo foo boat, the Mahogany were scraps from the boat yard, call me cheap

I don't know about the hinge.
To me it is just something to rust and stain things. how about a strip of wood cut to fit the angle's.
Otherwise first rate job.

Is that piano hinge stainless?

I didn't mean to critize you work. I fight a constant battle with rust stains.

The P.O on my boat didn't seem to know what stainless steel was.

I have been replacing screws nuts and bolts for years.

I am a functional kind of guy. Just not fond of decorative items. To me it has to perform a function or why have it.

I have enough things that can give me problems.
