Re: replacing the companionway drop boards




Travis,

The previous owner of my boat had replacements made of translucent smoked material.  I don't knwo exactly what it is but it is quite stiff and scratch resistant.  It is made in two pieces.  The horizontal edges where the two pieces meet has a scarf joint so that water running down the boards does not migrate into the cabin.

Some of us here in the Edmonton area have been considering having new forward hatches made of some similar material.  Mine is starting to leak and although I have a new seal from Gene, I'm reluctant to put it in until I replace the hatch.  

Given the age of the boats I would expect that there is demand for a number of these as well as drop boards.  If you could find a party willing to make both at reasonable prices, a number of people on this forum would buy in to make their manufacturing cost effective and profitable.

Doug
