That's very inspiring! Mine are in desperate need of help but lack an owner with your level of woodworking skills.

Very nice!

When I took the old doors off that plywood covered with fiberglass the plywood core was rotted around they windows and at the bottom.I kept looking at the doors and I thought they were built slightly out of square. .They were actually a 2 degree parallelogram.It was so slight that I almost built the doors square and they would not have worked .Man that would have been a huge and costly mistake .
I wish I was faster at woodworking . I know guys that can just blow through this kind of woodworking and never think twice. I have a tendency to over think and then can't decide how I want to go about building something. Cabinet and furniture making is not like the woodworking on any boat .The biggest challenge for me has been making the end result look like it's made for a boat and not a house.It doesn't always work but it is getting better.
This entire project has just about wooped my wife and I and we still have a good ways to go. I could not do this without her help and support.
Now it's the anchor platform I have to work out .

Now, those look nice!

Once on the boat they will be most impressive!

Very nice work. If building boats was easy we'd all be doing it!

I had a heck of a time with that caulking. Ya gotta tape each seam and really put it down good. Unlike yours, my caulking seemed to stain the teak right away, and I had to use another product to finish it out. Looks great, by the way.

Yeah Larry it wasn't as forgiving on my rail joints because the teak didn't have any finish on it . But it does clean up pretty good with just regular paint thinner but you have to scrub to get it out of the grain.I used a flexable putty knife instead of a hard knife and it seamed to work better. Caulking is just a pain no matter what you use. But taping it off and letting the end of the tape run wild so you have something to grab hold of when you pull it off is a big help . That way you don't have to use your finger nail to get tape started .

Yeah the old doors were hung and not very well . I made new tracks and the doors will hopefully slide in the bottom track and not hang up .I used uhmw in the track on the bottom . I mounted the tracks on a basement wall and the door frames slide pretty good but that was without the doors panels and on a wall not a cabin side.The doors will be at least twice as heavy as just the frames once I add the panels and the ports .I have a lot of adjustment built into the tracks.
