Lazarette Hatch Repair

2011/06/12 - The aft lazarette hatch was retrieved from the boat and brought into the shop to be rebuilt. Late last season, one of the side pieces came off when I stepped on the hatch to work on the backstay. Closer examination today showed that three of the four sides were beginning to delaminate and pull away from the hatch. A small pry bar made quick work of them and removed them so they could be epoxied back into position and refinished.

2011/08/11 - The lazarette hatch cover received its final coats of varnish and is complete. All of the hardware was buffed up a bit and then reinstalled. Once the recoring effort on the aft deck is complete the hatch will be returned to its proper place.
