She's just been down the shed and seen how big an Atlantic 75 is, explained the 21 was smaller lol.

Anyway, after me messing up the first frame my brother made me this so I can fit my hatch onto the front of my curved console thing is what colour should I do the hatch frame (wooden bit) rescue orange, grey or black.
The tubes are grey, the console is orange though not the same shade and the hatch is black?

Barnet Marine leave the front of the console blank and fit a hatch to the side. Would this be easier for you?

It would be but I kind of messed up.
I should have fitted my circular access hatch to the port side and this one to the starboard.
I put the circular one on the starboard side which meant this wouldn't fit on the port due to throttles. Bit of a bugger.

Black it is then.

Getting there slowly, painted the deck this morning, fitted the throttle and gear cable this afternoon, mounted the control box and helm, just needs the allen bolts on the helm unit tightening now.

Still to do is the hatches and electrics.

Chewy, looking good mate. Where did you buy the round hatch from on the side of your console?
