Jace, the pic's of PD's hatch fitting and the pic's of yours are worlds apart, the workmanship on his is well, dire.
I'm a Ribcraft fan, I greatly admired a forum member's new 585 which was extremely well finished and was a highly capable Rib, definately have one of your 585's on my list as a replacement for mine.
Question is, what went wrong with this fitting? Re-assure me, please.

presumably x-craft don't. As I recall the founders of Scorpion made a big deal about not having a wooden deck in the mags a year or so ago - so guess they may also now have wood below deck. On my tour of redbay a few weeks ago some of the stringers etc were definitely foam cored not wood - not sure if they are "wood free" though.

Although that said I don't think wooden decks are intrinsically wrong.

My Halmatic has foam cored stringers but the deck is sheathed marine ply, originally teak faced ply with treadmaster. Easy enough to replace the deck on mine though with bolt-on tubes etc

Since Jace has not come back, I'll try to tease him out with a bit of bait. Does anyone see anything wrong with the 2nd exemplary picture? Even if the Pikeys hatch had been done like this it would still have leaked, but why?

as far as i know Scorpion doesn't use plywood anywhere. I don't understand why RIB manufacturers still use plywood. These days there are materials which are lighter than wood and have the same strenght. it is only a bit more expensive.
