Hatch trimmed & fit

The hatch got pulled out of the mold and trimmed. We will fit the latches and then prime it and get it ready for paint.

A little more work on the aft hatch

we started faring the bottom of the hatch out so it has a nice finish look to it and we thought we would put our logo into the hatch bottom. We also made 1/8 shims for the latches to get the latches flush with the seadeck we are going to use on the deck.

You're having too much fun with that CNC router. It all looks great as usual.

My local maker space (shared communal workshop) has one and I used it to cut many layers of marine plywood to make an exterior door for my house. If I had the money I get one and never cut plywood on anything else, it's so much fun.

I designed and cut those shims in under 5 min. & cut that logo into the hatch after design etc in under :20. that would of taken me hrs. or days! Love it! if you need any thing cut Jason, PM me ill hook you up, just pay material cost and shipping.

A little more CNC work

We have cut the dash out, next we will cut reliefs into it so we can make the three bends needed for the dash. Hopping it works out so we dont need to try again! Fingers crossed i will post the progress.

Target Profile.

I have included a picture of what we are hoping to be our target profile when done. We are going to try this with one piece of 1/2" starboard so it is seamless.

The biggest thing I didn't do on my console was cup holders! For the sporty activities this boat is being designed for easy access to drinking water would be great. Or maybe better would be to put a water bladder holder up in the t-top. I just clip mine to the top but it's ugly.

Building bending jig

We need to bend this from the other side in order to keep the heat off the face and risk discoloration or blistering so we decided to build a reverse mold of the console. All the measurements are in and ready to go to the CNC.
