RE: M/T Hatch cover

Thanks for the input.* I wound up using 3/8" exterior plywood, glassed with 3 coats of West System epoxy.* Slats were ripped from a piece of 6/4 x 6 teak into 2" x 1/4" pieces.* I pegged and screwed the outside pieces, but the rest are just floating in black caulk.*

Still need to finish with Cetol, but will wait a while until the surface of the new teak dries out a little.

I have thought about a handle too, but it might not fit under the sunbrella cover.* We'll see.

hopefully this will last me a few years.* ...
